Artist and Illustrator, Matthew Wells, leads a series of workshops that focus on drawing on insects. Open to all ages and levels, participants will learn the purposes of drawing and documenting biological entities, as well as techniques for rendering the unique contours and vibrant colours of a variety of insect species. Taking place alongside Mark Dion’s exhibition The Life of a Dead Tree, these workshops give participants the opportunity to draw insect specimens that have been cultivated from the tree on display, including the emerald ash borer beetle.
Please bring a small journal or sketchbook. All other materials for the class will be provided.
