Covid-19 Update

2021 LOCKDOWN UPDATE: Wild Life Drawing will be back as soon as we can later this year – safe, socially distanced and adhering to the current guidelines. For now all forthcoming real life classes will have to be postponed again. All postponed classes will be rescheduled to a future date, or you’ll be welcome to swap your tickets to another class or some online classes. I am going to sit tight for a while before releasing new dates for the classes, until I can be sure that they’ll be able to go ahead so your patience and understanding would be heartily appreciated right now.

When we are able to begin our real life classes again, be assured that we are working hard with our partner venues to ensure all spaces are “covid secure” and every precaution is being taken to provide the cleanest environments and peace of mind, as well as an enjoyable class. Wild Life Drawing will only go ahead in the largest venues that we use, as well as restricting attendee numbers to ensure 2m social distancing can be maintained at all times. Communal materials are throughly cleaned before each class, or you are welcome to bring your own. We will also require everyone to wear face coverings at all time indoors, unless you are exempt.

All gift vouchers will have an additional 6 month extension (at the very least) on the expiry date, so you will have plenty of time to book onto a class.

Our online program will continue alongside the real-life classes; with free Instagram Lives and Zoom sessions with real animals at our partner sanctuaries, farms and aquariums. Enquiries about private online classes for companies or for special events are most welcome and there is more info on the Team Bookings section of the website. Creativity and nature are both proven stress relievers, and combined together can be doubly powerful. I’ll be making sure I support you all with a variety of opportunities to stay creative. Let’s look after each other and stay positive.

ONLINE CLASSES

RHINOS

Wednesday 24th February 2021
7pm-8pm GMT
Instagram Live Class
Free, donations welcome

Show full details

For the next Instagram Live class I’m delighted to be collaborating with the Thin Green Line Foundation, a charity that stands with rangers on the front line of protecting wildlife and habitat in high risk parts of the world. TGLF funds grassroots initiatives that highlight the importance of rangers and local communities in the fight against poaching and illegal trade and supports ranger families that have experienced loss through the Fallen ranger Fund. These issues are especially important right now as the pandemic has reduced income through eco-tourism and left areas with reduced, or without, ranger protection. And as a result, poaching levels are on the rise.

To raise money and awareness about these causes we will be sketching a magnificent rhinoceros from a reference photo. A female by the name of Najin, she is one of the last two remaining Northern White Rhinos at Ol Pejeta Nature Reserve in Kenya. As well as drawing, we’ll be chatting about rhinos in general, their curious characteristics and unique evolutionary traits. As always, this will be a step-by-step drawing tutorial from reference images that you can follow along with live, so everyone is welcome, no matter your age or ability level!

To take part you’ll need to download the Reference Image Pack – available to download here a week prior ot the class and also on the Instagram profile. I’ll be releasing a materials list closer to the time but don’t worry if you don’t have exactly the same kit – you can draw along in whatever you prefer or have to hand.

These Instagram Lives will always be free to join, but if you enjoy the classes and are in a position to contribute a small donation then that would be wholeheartedly appreciated and go towards keeping WLD up and running, and supporting some of the charities and animal handlers that we work with. This week 50% of the donations will go to the Thin Green Line Foundation.

On Saturday 27th February we will be virtually visiting Vauxhall City Farm in London to meet and draw their herd of friendly Alpacas. We’ll have two cameras set up for you to view Tom, Ben and Jerry (and their amazing alpaca hairdos) from different angles and we’ll be learning all about alpacas from Farm Manager Chris.

The class will begin with an introduction from WLD founder and artist Jennie Webber, who will take you through the basics of drawing animals from life, with a focus on alpaca anatomy. There will be a drawing demonstration of the shapes and proportions to identify and some handy hints for capturing the fleece texture and those two toed hooves. We will then switch screens to be introduced to the alpaca team and we’ll be chatting with Chris to find out about alpacas, their origins, their hypoallergenic fleece and their spitting habits. We’ll spend a whole hour drawing the alpacas from life, and there will be plenty of creative guidance and demonstrations along the way to help you with your drawings.

The basic materials you need to take part are paper, a pencil, eraser and sharpener, but of course you are more than welcome to work in whatever materials you enjoy or have to hand. Please get in touch if you need advice on materials, we’re happy to help! You will be emailed the Zoom link to join and 48 hours before the event is due to start, or in good time if you booked last minute. If you haven’t received the link, do check your junk mail first and then get in touch and we’ll make sure you have it before the event is due to take place. You just need one ticket per device, not per person.

50% of each ticket sold will be donated to Vauxhall City Farm.

Our next class with Sky Birds of Prey will be all about Eagles, birds renowned for their aerial abilities, wingspans and iconic hooked beaks. We’ll have a live zoom link set up with two majestic eagles – a Chilean Blue named Azul and a bald eagle named Xavier. As we draw each bird, we’ll learn about their hunting styles, strength and eagle conservation in the wild. The team at Sky Birds of Prey will be full of bird facts and will be more than happy to answer all your eagle questions.

The class will begin with an introduction from WLD founder and artist Jennie Webber, who will take you through the basics of drawing animals from life. We will then switch screens to be introduced to our feathered friends, and we’ll learn about their particular hunting techniques and evolutionary adaptions as well as how that species is currently doing in the wild. There will be a drawing demonstration of the shapes, proportions and anatomical features to identify – and Jennie will be on hand to demo, feedback or dish out creative advice throughout the whole session. We’ll spend just over 1 hour drawing, focussing on each eagle for around 35 minutes.

OCTOPUS

Instagram Live Class

This next Instagram Live features one of my all-time favourite animals, the octopus. This ocean dwelling cephalopod is highly intelligent, mysterious and magical – and there will be so many amazing facts that I’ll have to share with you. This class was inspired by the documentary My Octopus Teacher, which provides a unique insight into the daily life of an octopus in the wild and 50% of the donations will be paid forward to the associated charity Sea Change Project which works to protect biodiverse marine habitats.

As always, this will be a step-by-step drawing tutorial from reference images that you can follow along with live, so everyone is welcome, no matter your age or ability level! As well as drawing we’ll be chatting about octopus in general, their ability to use tools and to transform themselves for camouflage. Prepare to have your mind blown, and maybe gain a new favourite animal!

To take part you’ll need to download the Reference Image Pack – available to download here a week prior to the class and also via the Instagram profile links. I’ll be releasing a materials list closer to the time but don’t worry if you don’t have exactly the same kit – you can draw along in whatever you prefer or have to hand.

£10, 50% donated

Show full details

After many MANY requests, we’ve organised another chance to meet and draw the rescue baby sloths via live video link with Jaguar Rescue animal sanctuary in Costa Rica.

Jaguar Rescue is an animal rescue and rehabilitation centre based on the Caribbean coast of Costa Rica, a country known for it’s unique wildlife and it’s pioneering efforts in the battle against climate change. The centre specialises in caring for sloths, primates, big cats and all other mammals, birds and reptiles that are injured by traffic accidents or other animals, electrocuted by poorly insulated power lines or affected by the illegal trade in wildlife. Their main aim is to re-release the animals back into their natural habitat, and providing a forever home only to those that would not survive in the wild. We will be meeting and drawing their young sloths in the sloth nursery – with lots of blankets and enrichment toys, and apparently they like to all fall asleep in a ball. A ball of baby sloths!

The class will begin with an introduction from WLD founder and artist Jennie Webber, who will take you through the basics of drawing sloths from life. There will be a drawing demonstration of the shapes, proportions and anatomical features to identify and Jennie will be on hand to demo, feedback or dish out creative advice throughout the whole session. We will then switch screens to be introduced to the baby sloths, and we’ll watch, draw and learn about their unusual evolutionary characteristics as well as the dangers that affect sloths in the wild.

50% of each ticket sold will be donated to the Jaguar Rescue Centre.

GALAPAGOS ANIMALS

Next we’ll be journeying to the Galapagos Islands via Zoom with the Charles Darwin Foundation. This charity is based on Santa Cruz, the most populated of the Islands, and runs many crucial conservation projects that are vital in protecting the native species from invasive species, plastic pollution and climate change. We will be drawing Giant Tortoises, Mangrove Finches and Sea Turtles with a variety of media and working from a variety of beautiful reference images and videos taken by oceanic photographer Juan Manuel. While we draw we will be hearing from the team at the Foundation about the current projects that aim to conserve these particular Galapagos species and the biodiverse ecosystem, including breeding programs, egg protection and research into the invasive parasites that are preying on bird eggs. And at the very end – if the weather on the Islands is on our side – we’ll be able to head down to the beach with the team to spot some of the Marine Iguanas that hang out by CDF HQ!

A downloadable Reference Image Pack will be supplied with the Zoom link. The class will begin with an introduction from WLD founder and artist Jennie Webber, who will take you through sketching tortoises, sea turtles and finches in a simple, step-by-step format each in turn. There will be a drawing demonstration of the shapes, proportions and anatomical features to identify – and Jennie will be on hand to give feedback or creative advice throughout the whole session. Whilst we draw we’ll be chatting with the CDF team and everyone is welcome to ask questions.

50% of the ticket price will be donated to the Charles Darwin Foundation.

CHIMPS

Free, donations welcome

Show full details

For the next Instagram Live class I’m absolutely delighted to be collaborating with the Jane Goodall Institute’s Chimp Eden, a sanctuary for rescued and displaced chimpanzees set within the beautiful 1,000 hectare Umhloti Nature Reserve, South Africa.

To raise money and awareness about these endangered primates – that are our closest living relatives – on Wednesday 24th March we’ll be drawing from photographs taken of some of the rescue chimps in their semi-wild enclosures. The chimpanzees at Chimp Eden are the lucky ones, living out their lives in a risk free environment and being provided with the necessary attention and social interaction with other chimps to recover from the trauma they have experienced. Some of the chimps have survived the bush meat trade, been orphaned, traded in the illegal pet market, or being used as entertainment in circuses, beach resorts and night clubs.

As always, this will be a step-by-step drawing tutorial from reference images that you can follow along with live, so everyone is welcome, no matter your age or ability level! As well as drawing, we’ll be chatting about chimpanzees in general, their social groups, intelligence and ways in which we can help the species.

To take part you’ll need to download the Reference Image Pack which will be available to download here a week prior to the class, and also via the Instagram profile. I’ll be releasing a materials list closer to the time but don’t worry if you don’t have exactly the same kit – you can draw along in whatever you prefer or have to hand.

We begin the year with a real treat – beautiful British Lupine wolf dog Alice is expecting her first litter of puppies and – all being well – on Saturday 16th January we’ll get a chance to meet and fall in love with them! Still super soft and sleepy, clumsy and unbelievably cute – these British Lupine pups/cubs will be coming along with mum Alice and some of the extended wolf-dog family, as well as 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.

For our first drawing classes within the cosy confines of the new Mama Shelter Hotel in Shoreditch, we’ll be sketching the fine feathers of a Great Grey Owl, a huge female European Eagle Owl and a rare pure white Barn Owl named Halo. The class will begin with a short talk from our experienced and dedicated falconer and we will learn about their anatomy, unique characteristics and how they’ve evolved to use sound to pinpoint their prey from the air – especially the Great Grey who uses her facial discs to locate prey under three feet of snow! Our animal handlers will be full of facts about where to see these birds in the wild and any conservation issues affecting these species. All these owls are truly charismatic with their own individual personalities and I guarantee you’ll go away with not only some great drawings, but a new found respect and admiration for these beautiful birds of prey.

Mama Shelter has a lovely bar/cafe/restaurant that is open all day long for snacks, meals and drinks if you fancy having some brunch before your class, or a cosy cocktail afterwards.
