The Pomerene lawn is its own world of squirrels. The old pin oaks rise like apartment towers… with more than plenty of sticks and leaves for nest making… and acorn upon acorn for winter stores of food — just ask anyone who has tried to rake in the fall.
We’ll set up to be squirrel watchers, study how they move, take photos, and draw, draw, draw until we’ve created our own world of pasteboard squirrels. The workshop Includes getting furry ourselves for some great final photos of the young artists with their squirrels under the trees in situ.
Hour 1. Squirrel observation and first sketches
Hour 2. Final drawings using stuffed squirrels as reference.
Hour 3. Placing the squirrels, dressing up in furs and taking photos on the lawn.
