Understand Birds through Drawing with David Allen Sibley

Thursday, April 4, 2019

5:30 p.m.

The UM Museum is thrilled to welcome acclaimed ornithologist and artist, David Allen Sibley, to lead a live sketching demonstration to explain how feathers shape and color the birds that we see every day. Understanding the arrangement of feathers is key to understanding every aspect of a bird's appearance, and drawing is one of the best ways to explore that. This will help birders and artists gain a different perspective on how to identify and draw birds.

Free and open to everyone (any children in attendance must be accompanied by an adult).

Sketch materials and optimal seating are first-come, first-serve, so those wanting to sketch along may want to arrive early.
