The Montana Natural History Center is happy to welcome back Artist in Residence Sage Friss! This workshop is about drawing from life, a tried-and-true art practice for beginners and experienced artists alike. We will draw birds from the Montana Natural History Center’s collection! The goal of the class will be to draw what you see realistically. We will specifically focus on form, lighting, line weight, proportions, and texture. If artists already have strong skills in life drawing, we will work more on composition, expression, and finishing techniques.

Audience: This workshop is suitable for ages 6+ (with their grown-ups!). No experience is required.

What to bring: Everything you need for this workshop will be provided. If you have a favorite drawing tool or paper, you are welcome to bring them!

Cost: The workshop is free, but a suggested donation is appreciated!

Registration: Registration is required and will close 24 hours before the workshop begins. Register HERE.

About the Artist:

My name is Sage (he/him). I’m a surrealist artist living in Missoula. I draw most of my inspiration from animals and nature and spend a lot of time outside. I’m captivated by small details that are often overlooked. I like to create art that feels expensive and makes you wonder about the world around you.

Cancellation: If you are registered and cannot attend the workshop, please let us know at program@openairmt.org so we can open the spot for another participant!
