Wunderkammer Drawing: Jan 11 - Mar 1 - Museum für Naturkunde Berlin - Berlin

with Mira O'Brien (BDR Founding Director) in collaboration with the Museum für Naturkunde Berlin (Natural History Museum)Imagine you are seeing a scaly Pangolin or an iridescent Morpho didius butterfly for the first time. Is the timid Pangolin a pinecone come to life? Is the shimmering butterfly more than a mirage? It is this sense of wonder at the natural world that we will seek to reconnect with through the act of drawing. As we explore the collections of the Natural History Museum, we will assume the role of the Naturalist who was both artist and scientist. Through the act of close observation, we will gain unique perceptual insights into our specimens. During the first four weekly sessions we will focus on drawing techniques. During the following four weekly sessions we will focus on watercolor techniques. While our studies will be more closely aligned with field work than polished studio work, they will contain the vibrancy of wonder.Location: Museum für Naturkunde Berlin, Invalidenstr. 43 · 10115 BerlinJanuary 11 - March 1, 2019Fridays 10:30am-1:30pmDrawing: January 11, 18, 25, February 1Watercolor: February 8, 15, 22, March 1Cost: 124€ per 4 week module. 224€ for both modules.
