DRAWING MARATHON for ANIMALS ASIA

Time & Location
28 Aug 2021, 11:00 – 16:00 BST
About the Event
When I saw the extraordinary work that ANIMALS ASIA was doing recently to rescue 101 asian bears from the bile industry, I was so moved that I knew I wanted to try to help. But what could I do??
Yep, you guessed it, create a DRAWING MARATHON Fundraiser that celebrates the beauty & energy of some of the extraordinary animals rescued by this brilliant charity. On this occassion we'll be drawing Sun & Moon Bears & Asian Elephants and HALF of ALL TICKET SALES will go to ANIMALS ASIA!
DON'T WORRY! You DO NOT have to commit to drawing the full marathon! You can simply purchase a ticket for the segment(s) that you would like to partake in, hop onto the zoom and join the drawing party. Of course, if you'd like to keep me company for the full duration, and give those creative juices a proper workout then I'd love the company and you can consider yourself a total drawing legend and fundraising warrior!
Here's the line-up:
* 1100-1130am (uk time): Draw-Along Moon Bear for younger artists. 30mins, only pencil & paper required, £5
* 1130-1200am (uk time): Draw-Along Moon Bear with coffee, dirt & a stick. 30mins, suitable for all abilities who'd like to have a go at drawing a bear under guidance. £6
* 1200-1.30pm (uk time): Unguided Animal Life Drawing of Moon & Sunbears. Draw however you like with me from video & photography of the gorgeous rescued bears living happily ever after. It's going to be gorgeous! You don't need to have any experience to do this, just the desire to want to have a go. Although unguided I will be chatting about bears & drawing & am always happy to answer questions as we go. It's a great feeling drawing in creative company & this is even better...it's got bears! £12
*1.45pm-2.30pm (uk time): Draw-Along Asian Elephant with coffee, dirt, a teabag & a stick on paper. Suitable for beginners or anyone who fancies a bit of creativity with coffee & a stick! £8
*2.30-4.00pm (uk time): Unguided Animal Life Drawing of Asian Elephants from video & photography from Animals Asia. This is going to be a beautiful and fun session full of inspiring imagery of glorious rescued elephants living happy lives £12
*ALL DAY TICKET - £35
You can book individual slots, or, if you're up for an all-day drawing marathon challenge with me, you can purchase an all-day ticket for £35. Please remember that HALF of ALL proceeds go directly to Animals Asia and will make a really positive impact into the work that they do.
