UW-Stevens Point offering ‘Drawing Wildlife from Photos’ workshop August 8, 2023 Learn to draw wildlife from photographs at a workshop offered at UW-Stevens Point on Saturday, August 19. Embark on a creative journey that combines wildlife conservation and artistic expression at a workshop offered by the Wisconsin Center for Wildlife at the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point. The “Drawing Wildlife from Photos” workshop will be offered from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., Saturday, August 19, in Room 126 of the Noel Fine Arts Building, 1800 Portage Street, Stevens Point. The workshop is part of the Wisconsin Center’s Wildlife Conservation Through Art Program. This workshop will help beginning artists capture the essence of animals when sketching from photographs and introduce them to the Snapshot Wisconsin Program by the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources. The Snapshot Wisconsin Program is a collaborative initiative aimed at monitoring wildlife through a network of volunteer-managed trail cameras that capture native fauna. These images are shared on Zooniverse, a platform for community science programs. During the workshop, participants will gain hands-on experience by accessing Snapshot Wisconsin Zooniverse, where they’ll learn to classify photos and discover captivating visuals to transform into their own artistic creations. Attendees will receive comprehensive guidance on fundamental drawing techniques, from mastering correct angles and proportions to grasping the nuances of value (light and dark). The basics of animal anatomy will be covered, providing a deeper understanding of the subjects. All necessary materials, including sketchbooks, pencils, and erasers, will be provided. The registration fee is $35.
