The Card Wildlife Education Center is the perfect environment for artists who would like to try their hand drawing wild animals. With over 200 wildlife specimens from around the world, this natural history museum is a virtual treasure trove for artists from beginners to seasoned professionals. The opportunity to be mere inches from actual animal specimens allows for the possibility of extreme accuracy in rendering, and the exceptional taxidermy on display shows many of these animals in remarkably life-like displays.
This three-hour wildlife drawing workshop is open to artists of all experience and age levels.
Space is limited, and pre-registration is required.
