Humans and other animals have lots of things in common, in this “Animals that Come in Twos” class we focus on one of these special things we have in common: friends! We at the Bateman Foundation believe in making creative, fun, and educational environments for students where they can practise their art, learn about nature, and find things in common with nature, and this month we are celebrating having friendship in common with nature.
This 4-week Junior NatureSketch Online course is taught by Val Lawton, who teaches art fundamentals such as line drawing, understanding shapes and shading techniques, with a fresh and fun approach that will encourage budding artists to create beautiful nature sketches. Using eco-literacy principles from world-renowned artist and naturalist, Robert Bateman, we encourage participants to connect to nature through art and observation
In this class we will learn about, discuss, and learn to draw four pairs of animals that like to do things together found in Nature, and students will have made 4 drawings and gained the knowledge to make many more!
At the end of the program students have the opportunity to submit their art to be put up in the NatureSketch Gallery.
Instructor will email students with finalised details a few days prior to the beginning of the class.
All online classes can be watched later if you cannot make the times listed! Instructors are also available by email for individual critiques or questions outside of class time.
