(3.2) The Museum of Natural History at Roger Williams Park is again offering its “Drawing Wild from the Collection” program.
You will have the opportunity to discover, or rediscover, the fascinating collections during this private program exploring the museum. Bring a small easel or chair and your drawing or painting materials, and choose your subject from the collections of birds, bears, lions, and Oceanic artifacts. Museum staff will also select some special “guests” from the museum vaults to display. During the program, instructor Kathy Hodge will circulate for those who wish feedback, and at the end of the session, attendees will gather (socially distanced) to view and discuss each other’s work.
Another session is scheduled for April 7.
Kathy Hodge attended RISD and has a BFA in painting from Swain School of Design. She has been working in oils and charcoal for over 30 years, has exhibited widely and was awarded the 2017 Fellowship in Painting from the Rhode Island State Council on the Arts.
$35 per adult/ $30 for museum members. Pre-registration required. You may bring charcoal pencils, graphite, colored pencils, pastels, or watercolor (please, no oils or acrylics). All skill levels are welcome to participate, high school age and older. Capacity is limited, so sign up early to guarantee your spot.
