Bestiary: Art in the Animal Kingdom 

Saturdays, May 16th - June 20th 

Time: 10am-11:30am

FREE live instruction via Zoom by Ms. Jenn and Ms. Mari! 

Animals have appeared in art from as early as the cave paintings of Lascaux, about 32,000 years ago and continue to inspire and influence contemporary artists. Join us as we create colorful and quirky animals seen through the eyes of famous artists, designers and illustrators such as Nick Cave and Kiki Smith. Each day we’ll spend time creating unique animal artworks using a variety of mixed media including watercolor pencils, oil pastels, paint, glue, and more! Our creative agenda features a mix of animal painting, illustration, printmaking, and collage, both imagined and realistic.
