Rescue Dogs Charity Special

Sunday 18th November 2018

11am-1pm & 2pm-4pm (£26 – 50% donated to Wild at Heart Foundation)

At Ace Hotel, E1 6JQ

This next drawing class is very close to my heart. This year, my fiancé and I adopted Emil, a stray from the streets of Bosnia via Wild at Heart Foundation. We've seen him develop from nervous and unsettled into an energetic and loving dog who we can't live without! Wild at Heart works to compassionately reduce the world's 600 million stray dog population by organising rescue projects, neutering programmes and education initiatives. We're collaborating on two charity classes, drawing rescue dogs of all different sizes, breeds and colours (including Emil!) all that have been successfully and happily rehomed.

Sharks & Rays

Tuesday 27th November 2018

7pm-9pm (£26 – 50% donated to Sea Life Trust)

At London Aquarium, SE1 7PB

This November we're back at the SEA LIFE London Aquarium to get up close and personal with Sharks and Rays. Our charity drawing class will focus on the two largest shark tanks in the aquarium; home to Sand Tiger Sharks, Nurse Sharks and White and Black Tip Reef Sharks. As well as these shark species, there are also two rescued Green Sea Turtles, Southern and Cownose Stingrays and a Bowmouth Guitarfish – half shark/half ray – alongside a multitude of fish. Although we will predominantly be focussing on Sharks, attendees will have free rein of the aquarium to draw from all the amazing species.

Christmas Special: A Pet is for Life

Monday 3rd December 2018

7pm-9pm (£27.50 - 10% donated to South Essex Wildlife)

At Carousel London, W1U 8AB

For our Christmas Special this year we’re promoting responsible pet ownership and the #adoptdontshop motto with our ‘A pet is for life’ theme. We’ll be meeting, drawing and learning about a wide variety of rescue animals, all of which are top of the rehoming list in the UK. During the evening we’ll be sketching poor old Bearded Dragons, a common reptile often intensively bred by irresponsible breeders along with Tortoises, Musk Turtles, Leopard Geckos and Corn Snakes – all reptiles that are often given up due to the expensive energy bills needed to heat their tanks. We'll be drawing Ferrets, Rabbits, Guinea Pigs and Skinny Pigs, small animals that are often mistreated due to lack of knowledge about the species.

Animals of North America

Wednesday 16th January 2019

7pm-9pm (£26)

At The Doll's House, N1 1RQ

In the new year we look to animals of North America for our inspiration – meeting and drawing species including an opossum, skunks, polecats and two charming prairie dogs. Each of these animals has evolved to suit the environment and to thrive alongside urbanisation – with some of these animals considered pests in the cities. We will be discussing the characteristics, habits and diets of these animals and look at the welfare issues affecting their species. In particular we will talk about the endangered wild population of American Polecats and the incredible efforts of a conservation breeding program aiming to reintroduce animals into the wild to sustain the population.

11am-1pm & 2pm-4pm (£27.50 – includes refreshments)

Next we look to the skies to observe the flying styles and hunting techniques of birds of prey – true aerial predators. We’ll be meeting and drawing Harris Hawks, Lanner Falcons and Barn Owls and begin with a detailed talk from our experienced falconer, learning about their anatomy, unique characteristics and how they’ve evolved to be expert hunters of the skies. There will be short flying demonstration with some of the birds before we settle down for some sketching. Some species will be native to the UK and we will be discussing their habitats in the wild, where to look for them and any conservation issues affecting these birds.

Wolves

Wednesday 20th February 2019

11am-1pm (Families) & 2pm-4pm (Adults)

At Richmond Art School, TW9 2RE

Back by popular demand, our "wolves" are in fact British Lupine dogs that are friendly and loyal as well as being perfect wolf look-a-likes – they have pure wolf in their bloodline. They still retain their pack mentality, eat only raw meat and howl at the full moon! The class will be introduced with a short talk from 'Head Wolf' Natalie Lagstrom, and we’ll look in detail at their anatomy and how they’ve evolved to adapt to habitats across the globe. As well as drawing, we will discuss current conservation issues facing wolves in the wild – plus the results of their incredible reintroduction to Yellowstone. And of course, everyone can have a stroke and a cuddle at the end!
