Sip and Sketch: Drawing with Graphite

February 20 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

$25 – $30

Spend an enjoyable evening learning how to develop your skills in graphite drawing. Artist Jenah Mead will demonstrate her drawing process, moving from a gesture and shapes to more confident lines, to values, to details. Choose your subject from a wide array of bird-related natural objects–bird specimens, eggs, and nests. Jenah will provide individual support in approaching texture and subjects.

All materials, two glasses of wine, beer, or soda, and light refreshments are included in the program. So sit back, sip a beverage, and draw!

Jenah Mead an educator, naturalist, and visual artist who specializes in wildlife drawings and paintings. Jenah has taught science and environmental education to all ages on behalf of several organizations, including the Montana Natural History Center, the SPARK! program, Clark Fork Watershed Education Program (CFWEP), The Wildlife Society, spectrUM Science Discovery Area, and undergraduate organic chemistry labs at The University of Montana.

“As an artist, discovering our place through art makes intuitive sense to me. Art requires us to really see the subject of our work, pouring over every little detail. Art requires us to understand our subject and try to capture its spirit. It requires us to feel something and reflect that feeling in the finished piece.”

Registration is required. Tickets will be available February 1st. Register here.

Cost: $25 MNHC members, $30 non-members.

Cancellation policy: the course fee (minus a 25% administrative fee) is refundable if a cancellation is made up to 7 days before the event. No refunds will be issued for cancellations made after this deadline.
