Uncover the world of bugs through illustration! Together we will explore the tiny invertebrate world and discover what makes an insect an insect.
We will learn the basics of entomological illustration— including why and how professionals need to draw insects— and take time to learn how to draw pinned insects, as well as search for our own live bugs to draw! Appropriate for adults and teens. Space is limited; registration required.
