Drawing Birds Together Session 1

Date and Time: April 10 @ 10:30am-12pm
Registration Deadline: April 9 @ 12pm

Session 1: Down by the Lake – Mallards and Herons

Format: Virtual – online via Zoom

Over three-weekend studio sessions, we’ll be drawing Michigan’s famous and beautiful birds together. Join us as we learn step-by-step, with Hannah leading students to understand how to create images that capture the birds’ likeness. Each week will have a different theme, so feel free to drop in for one week or take the whole series.

Each lesson will consist of an art warm-up like sketching or doing a color study, learning a painting technique, and then two projects.

Hannah Safford studied Drawing and Art Education at Montana State University. Since leaving school, she has been teaching drawing and painting classes at art centers in Michigan. She’s an avid birdwatcher and uses her illustration skills to record the birds as she sees them in her sketchbooks. Her work was published in the children’s book “Hector: A small painted turtle.”


Students are encouraged to have their materials, including a watercolor kit, watercolor paper, sketching pencil, eraser, ink pens, and a love for birds!
