Virtual Quick Bird Sketches Workshop


Have you ever wanted to sketch a bird you see in the field? Do you want to learn how to express your love for birds through art? Then join our Virtual Quick Bird Sketches Workshop with artist, teacher, and avian community scientist Yongchun Huang and help raise money to conserve birds! 

In this workshop Chun will teach participants how to quickly sketch 3-5 different birds that have different characteristics; explain how to observe shapes, body proportions, and features; and teach them how to capture a bird’s essence on paper through quick sketches. At the end of the class she will invite students to show off their new skills by sketching birds she shows them in just 2-3 minutes, just like they’d do in the field. 

Participants will also be invited to have their work showcased in a short video to be shared at SFBBO’s Annual Membership Meeting on Oct. 17. This is a relaxing, family-friendly workshop, and adult participants are also invited to sip a glass of wine at home as they sketch. 

This event is part of SFBBO's annual California Fall Challenge (CFC) fundraiser. Minimum $20 donation to register, $60 minimum registration to also receive our 2020 CFC T-Shirt. The value of the t-shirt ($10) is not tax deductible. Families can register for $40 for up to 4 members (shirts are available separately). Our goal is to raise $33,000 to support our work throughout the year and we hope you will participate and support us to reach our goal!
