ART ON SATURDAYS: Finding Form & Tone - Animal Portraits with Kate Jenvey

Kate Jenvey is an internationally renowned artist who creates highly detailed images of wild animals and birds. From the artist’s early childhood in East Africa, nature has been a source of wonder and excitement leading to a great respect for the natural world.
In this workshop, Kate will explore the effect of light on animal subjects and how it defines form. Participants will learn about the importance of tonal value in rendering realistic drawings and build knowledge of pencil techniques. You will then use these skills to draw animal portraits.
