Drawing a natural item – a leaf, a shell, an insect – increases your observational skills and knowledge about that item.
From the comfort of your own home, you can try your hand at drawing a specimen from the museum’s collections. We'll post images or videos to give you a clear three-dimensional view of the items. We will be switching out the specimens every few weeks till May 1st.
Our next illustration is A Marine Still Life. Feel free to use the image gallery below for inspiration. Sketch your illustration until you're satisfied with the result. This is a great activity for both beginner and advanced illustrators. We'd love to gather the program participants and their illustrations to share what has been created. Please send your illustrations to firstname.lastname@example.org. We can't wait to see what you create!
