Do you like to draw?  Like birds?  Why not combine the two and enroll in our “Mini-Bird Drawing Class” with Dorota Haber-Lehigh?

This workshop, sponsored by the Friends of the Seaside Library, takes place at 1:00 p.m on Saturday, March 9, 2019.

Local artist, Dorota Haber-Lehigh, will introduce the fascinating realm of aviary illustration..

The first day of spring is March 20th.  Usher it in by drawing a portrait of our fine, feathered, friends. 

Learn to create a whimsical, mini-bird portrait using colored pencils on walnut ink paper.  Participants will begin with a foundation sketch, later adding gentle layers of color.

Loose texture application and color blending will be among the techiniques discussed. With step by step guidance, bird portraiture can be easily grasped.

There will be the option to use watercolor or gouache as a foundation for your bird, so please bring a set of watercolors or gouache if you already have one

Please also bring a reference photo, or two, of the bird you intend to draw.
