|Oakly: Spectaled Owl
|Catelyn, Peregrine Falcon
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.
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.
