Arts Underground, Yukon Historical Museums Association and Yukon Beringia Interpretive Centre are teaming up! Join Artist Esther Bordet for an introductory class on sketching Prehistoric Animals. The workshop will focus on timed sketching exercises, observational drawing techniques, and how to simplify complicated anatomy.

Yukon Beringia Interpretive Centre staff will also be leading short interpetive segments on the ice age animals that you're drawing so you can learn more about the life and habits of these animals while you draw them!

Arts Underground, Yukon Historical Museums Association and the Old Log Church Museum are teaming up in this workshop where an introductory class on sketching historical buildings will be paired with heritage interpretation. The instruction will cover three main topics: how to break down complicated looking facades into more simple shapes, how perspective affects what we see, and how to layer the different parts of the image to create depth.

Learn about the history at the Old Log Church Museum while also learning to draw it!
