11/28/2017, 11/30/2017, 12/5/2017, 12/7/2017

Get out in the field and do some sketching no matter the weather with Marjorie Leggitt, an awardwinning illustrator whose work you enjoy in Prehistoric Journey and many other halls.


Because the Museum’s dioramas are beautiful bio-systems frozen in time, they also make excellent subject matter for indoor field sketching. In this course for all levels, start with the basics, learning to draw individual subjects and work with simple tools to get accurate proportions. Move on to more complete scenes that capture the big picture. Working in graphite, you will be able to take your new skills on the road for your next adventure. Materials included.
