About the Event
It feels as though this session has been a LONG time coming as I first chatted with the Duke Lemur Centre in January! It was decided though that to get the best drawing experience of the lemurs outside enjoying their 100acres of woodland, the warmer weather would be better suited! We also needed to coordinate our schedule for feeding time so that the lemurs will come to us and that the wonderful staff are not wandering around 100acres of woodland searching for them!
The Duke Lemur Centre is located in North Carolina and houses over 200 lemurs and bushbabies across 13 species—the most diverse population of lemurs on Earth, outside their native Madagascar. The work they do is absolutley critical to the survival of many of these species. Think of the centre like a genetic arc for these animals until their habitat is in a stable and sustainable condition again. Learning about this centre and the work they do has literally blown my mind and I cannot wait to learn and share more whilst we draw and chat with one of the researchers & carers at DLC.
Half of all ticket sales will go directy to the DLC to support the incredible work they are doing.
ALL levels of creatives are welcome to these sessions, any age or ability! You can expect is to find an encouraging group of animal-loving artists at the Elephant in the Room sessions, the atomosphere is always warm and inviting. The challenge of drawing animals can seem daunting at first but you are great company here, and although the sessions are essentially unguided, I am always delighted to talk through techniques and materials as we draw.
DO BRING PLENTY OF PAPER - you will get through a lot! The rest is up to you, but I recommend choosing materials that move quickly across the page for those moving animal studies.
PLEASE ARRIVE IN PLENTY OF TIME - the sessions are always jam-packed with footage so I try to start promptly at 7pm so it's a good idea to jump on the zoom ten mins beforehand to get settled. I can of course let you in if you arrive late (I'm no meany!) : )
I can't wait to draw with you!
