Sketching animals can present many challenges, so join us on Thursday, March 21, 2013 from 7-9 p.m. (Snow date: March 28, 2013) at the Mamaroneck Artists' Guild to see how wildlife artist Alison Nicholls overcomes these challenges in order to sketch wildlife in Africa.
Nicholls will give a short introduction and demonstration then give you time to try your own sketches.
Bring your own sketchbook and try her methods for yourself, by sketching wildlife from Nicholls' videos of Africa.
Please bring dry sketching materials only. The goal of the workshop will be to create many quick sketches. Please note: Participants will be working without a table or easel. Suggested materials include an 11” x 14" sketchbook and a limited, but varied, selection of pencils & pens.
Nicholls lived in southern Africa for many years and only paints the wildlife species she has observed and sketched in their natural habitat. She is a member of Artists for Conservation, the Explorers Club, the Salmagundi Club and the Society of Animal Artists. The US Department of State used her work to promote the “Coalition Against Wildlife Trafficking” initiative and her work has been exhibited around the world including at the Botswana Mission and United Nations.
The workshop is open to the public and the fee to participate is $20. Space is limited and registration is required. To register please call the Gallery at 914-834-1117 or e-mail Suzanne at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Gallery is located at 126 Larchmont Ave., Larchmont, New York.
