Bird Anatomy for Artists (2019)

  • Date: November 10, 2019
  • Time: 1:00pm - 4:00pm

This one-of-a-kind workshop is back by popular demand! From goldfinches to bald eagles, Bartram’s Garden is a favorite stop for many migratory and year-round species of birds. We’ll take a look at the art and the science of avian anatomy. Explore new techniques for drawing on the fly and experience our feathered friends from a new perspective.

Teaching artist Heather Rinehart approaches fine art through her love of science and history. She has a professional background in illustration and design and a deep interest in nature and storytelling, offering her student’s instruction in multi-disciplinary place-based art.
