Bird Drawing Classes with John Muir Laws
Welcome to Audubon's Bird Drawing Classes with John Muir Laws! This series of 3 classes will take place every other week on Tuesday 12:00 - 1:30 PST

September 1
How to Make Bird Drawings Come Alive
Do your bird drawings feel stiff or frozen? Unlock the life in your bird drawings by showing less and suggesting more. Learn advanced bird drawings techniques to help you simplify plumage and suggest detail with a few strokes. These techniques will bring more life to your birds and are essential for fast field sketching. Safety note, in accordance with covid 19 safety guidelines, all the birds we draw will be masked (masked duck, masked finch, masked bobby, masked lapwing etc.) Bring pencil paper, and a sense of humor.

September 15
Rotate birds and Draw them from any Angle
Say goodbye to static side views and draw birds every which way they land. A few basic visualization techniques will help you see the pose in the field and capture it on paper. In honor of Latinx Heritage Month, we will be drawing from birds found in Central and South America.

September 29
Drawing Raptors and other Large Birds in Flight
In this class we will combine two critical elements, a functional understanding of bird structure, and key principles of foreshortening. Be sure to print out and fold the paper bird models before the class. They will help you see, understand, and draw flying birds and help solve key points of confusion.
