Drawing At The Zoo: Lions and Tigers and Bears, Oh My! It’s time to put our newfound life drawing skills to the ultimate test! Today you as artists will be creating a small body of work created “en plain l’air” like the great masters of old. Using a wide variety of drawing media, you will be given all day to showcase your talent in a series of sketches and gesture drawings in your sketchbooks. You are given complete freedom in terms of which subjects you choose, but there are a few criteria that must be fulfilled: - You must have at least two full page sketches in each of the following media: o Pencil o Pen o Coloured pencil o Grease pencil/China marker o Conte - You must also include at least 4 gesture drawings in any media of your choice. I also want to see a little bit of variety in your subjects. This means that if you do most of your sketches as animals, I want at least ONE sketch of a human figure, and vice versa. Your sketchbooks are to be handed back into me on the bus ride home. Have an awesome day at the zoo! Tip: if you foresee yourself getting stuck on figure construction, you might want to bring your figure drawing package with you for reference.
