Birds of Prey Art Class  Jonathan Wilde

Enjoy a day of art lessons in a natural and creative atmosphere instructed by wildlife artist Jon Wilde. Students will have the opportunity to draw or paint two of Hoo's Woods education raptors; Oakley a Spectacled Owl and Catelyn a Peregrine Falcon. The focus of this workshop will be as much about understanding how feathers "fit" a bird as well as ways to realistically portray these birds. Students are encouraged to bring their medium of choice; drawing (graphite, colored pencil, charcoal, pastel) or painting (acrylic, oil, watercolor), appropriate drawing papers, or canvas and necessary accompanying supplies as preferred.

Jon Wilde is a native of Southern Wisconsin and has been painting birds full time for 47 years. For 43 of those years he has been a licensed falconer. His work is exhibited in some of Wisconsin's best gallery's and is in numerous public and private collections.

The day will also include a program presented by Dianne Moller, director of Hoo's Woods. Participants will learn about their natural history, breeding, habitat and behaviors.  Sat. Aug 5, 10 - 3:30  $150.

***Proceeds to benefit the care of our education birds.***
