Drawing Wildlife Class

Jenya's gotten very focused on drawing recently, and decided to sign up for an art class at the Carnegie Museum of Natural History.

She picked the "Drawing Wildlife" class, taught by Mark Klingler. It's actually an adult art class, because she wanted "real" art lessons, not pasting tissue paper onto cardboard (her words).

She handled herself very well with all the grownups, and the instructor was very supportive and encouraging. It was a great experience. They picked something from the CMNH hall of mammals, and then spent 3 weeks progressively sketching, drawing, painting, and polishing a watercolor of whatever they picked. Jenya learned quite a lot.
