Sea Turtles

Wednesday 6th November 2019

7pm-9pm (£28 - 50% donated to the Sea Life Trust)

At London Aquarium, SE1 7PB

Our next underwater adventure will be all about Sea Turtles! The London Aquarium is home to two rescued green sea turtles by the names of Boris and Phoenix. They came to SEA LIFE London through a rescue project in the Cayman Islands where they were being bred for food. The class will commence with a short talk by an Aquarium expert, who will tell us about sea turtle conservation around the world, and the effects of climate change, plastic pollution and the fishing industry on the species. Although we will be focussing on the turtles, attendees will have free rein of the aquarium after hours and will be able to sketch the sharks, fish and rays at their leisure.

Rescue Dogs

Sunday 10th November 2019

At Flowerpot Studios, N1 5QJ

Delighted to announce another special workshop in collaboration with Wild at Heart Foundation to raise money and awareness for their worthy canine causes. We’ll be drawing WAHF rescue dogs of all different sizes, breeds and colours; and all of them have happy rehoming stories to tell. £10 from the price of each ticket will be donated to Wild at Heart Foundation – and we'll be joined by members of their team to tell us all in person about some of the neutering projects they run overseas and how they're working to combat the brutal mistreatment suffered by strays, plus advice on ways we can get involved to help.

Guinea Pigs

Monday 11th November 2019

7pm-9pm (£28)

At Ace Hotel, E1 6JQ

Guinea Pigs – cute, charming and the favourite animal of a great many. Back by popular demand, no less than eight delightful guinea pigs – each with their own stylish hairdos – will be visiting from Spitalfields City Farm, where they’ve been happily rehomed from South Essex Wildlife Hospital. As well as drawing, we will be learning all about these amazing little animals; their origins, characteristics and the language of squeaks they use to communicate with the rest of their sociable herd. We will also be discussing responsible pet ownership and how to ensure the needs of your cavy are met. This class is open to all ages and abilities, and devout guinea pig lovers are especially welcome.

Wolves

Thursday 21st November 2019

7pm-9pm (£30 - 10% donated to Wolf Watch UK)

At Royal Society of Scuptors, SW7 3RA

Another chance to meet, draw and fall in love with our wonderful 'wolves' – back this November due to unbelievable demand. These "wolves" are a family of British Lupine dogs that are tame and loyal domestic pets, yet retain some wolf-like characteristics – they have pure wolf in their bloodline. Ranging from black to almost white, fluffy to sleek – they all are perfect wolf look-a-likes, yet love cuddles and belly rubs! The class will be introduced with a short talk from 'Head Wolf' Natalie Lagstrom, and we’ll look in detail at their anatomy, conservation and how they’ve evolved to adapt to habitats across the globe.

Coral Reefs

Tuesday 26th November 2019

7pm-9pm (£28 - 50% donated to the Sea Life Trust)

At London Aquarium, SE1 7PB

This year the London Aquarium unveiled their incredible new Coral Kingdom, housing the largest living coral reef in the UK. We'll be celebrating with another after hours class focussing on the important issue of coral conservation, as many reefs around the world are suffering dramatic destruction due to climate change, ocean acidification and overfishing. We will be drawing and exploring carefully nurtured living corals and the ecosystems they support in the 40ft tank; with fish including regal tangs, clownfish and cardinal fish and animals such as cleaner shrimp, starfish, hermit crabs and amazing anemones. As the night progresses we will see the coral start to glow bright neons with their bioluminescence.

Wolf Cubs

Saturday 14th December 2019

11am-1pm & 2pm-4pm (£30 - 10% donated to Blue Cross)

At Ace Hotel, E1 6JQ

We have a special Christmas treat for you this December – another chance to meet, draw and fall in love with wolf cubs! Not a particularly festive theme, but the lovely litter of British Lupine wolf-dog puppies will be about seven weeks old by then and will be beyond cute so we couldn't not draw them! These British Lupine pups/cubs will be coming along with some of their protective older family members and their dedicated handler Natalie, a Behavioural Scientist specialising in canines and an expert on wild wolves. During the class, we’ll be looking in detail at wolf anatomy and learn how wolf packs care for their young in the wild and how their family dynamics mirror our own.
