Another beautiful sunny day - this time out in the city with the amazing baby animal sculptures. It was quiet and we were able to start with a quick blind contour drawing demonstration of Aldo the baby African elephant before wandering around to journal the other sculptures at our own pace.
Gillie and Marc's life-sized bronze sculptures of 20 of the world's most endangered baby animals might not be alive and moving, but there is still opportunity to learn about them and add our experiences into our nature journals. Stay and study your favourite or wander around, perhaps including a poem to describe how you feel about the plight of these threatened creatures. For those interested in WA's own endangered babies there is more to explore inside the WA Museum.
Afterwards we can meet and share at Epoch café where there is also a gallery of original paintings created by Gillie and Marc on display.
All skill levels are welcome. Children must be supervised at all times. Please register if you plan to attend.
