The world of entomology is diverse and beautiful. Insects are one of the only animal groups found in nearly every environment and illustrations of them grace the pages of scientific journals all over the world.
In this workshop, students will be provided a variety of preserved insects to draw from life. We will discuss a brief history of scientific illustration and entomology followed by a tutorial on several traditional techniques used by scientific illustrators.
Students will finish the workshop with their own detailed insect illustration.
This workshop is appropriate for artists of any skill level.
