Do you like to draw?  Like bugs and skulls? 

Why not combine the two and sign up for our “Drawing Bugs & Skulls: Real & Imagined” with local artist and illustrator, Dorota Haber-Lehigh? 

This workshop, sponsored by the Friends of the Seaside Library, takes place at 1:00 p.m on Saturday, September 21st, 2019.

Celebrate the fall season by drawing bugs or skulls with colored pencils at the library.

This class is not for the squeamish. 

Bugs-and-skulls, oh, me!  Bugs-and-skulls, oh, my!

Explore basic calvaria anatomy and learn methods of color mixing/blending to create a fun and original drawing of a (ulp!) skull.

If skulls aren't your bag, Dorota can teach you to draw an arthropod which is the fancy word for (ulp!) BUG.

Instruction includes techniques to proportionally enlarge drawings and the use of bilateral symmetry to illustrate various species.

She will bring specimens of bird and animal skulls as well as a variety of bugs for reference.  

Participants are encouraged to bring a favorite book on anatomy or entomology for personal reference.
