Local artist Tresham Gregg and the American Bald Eagle Foundation are coming together this spring to present a series of wildlife art classes. Working from wildlife specimens in the ABEF natural history museum, students will be guided through basic anatomical sketching and drawing to more complex composition and media, while finding and connecting with the spirit of Alaskan wildlife.
Classes begin March 11th and will run through late April, Friday and Saturday afternoons from 1:30 to 3:00, and will cost $20 per person. Students will need a sketch pad, B (soft lead) pencils, and erasers. Supplies can be brought from home, or ordered through the Foundation. Contact sidney(at)baldeagles(dot)org for more information.
