Learn to sketch birds and wildlife at the Klamath County Library

Downtown Klamath County Library
Learn to sketch birds and wildlife from observation Thursday, March 29th at 5pm at the downtown Klamath County Library.
This event is part of a series of nature-themed films, workshops and other activities for all ages brought to you by Teresa “Bird” Wicks from the Great Outdoor Alliance each month through July 2018.
Wicks will share tips and tricks to sketching wildlife you observe outside to help you remember hikes and outdoor trips, or just to document interesting animal behavior in your neighborhood. She’ll also have some displays on hand to help you test out your new skills.
Wicks spent her childhood roaming the forests of southern Oregon while her father climbed trees to collect cones. An early obsession with birds led to hours of hiking, journaling, and artistic expression. As a scientist, educator, and artist, Wicks derives great joy from introducing kids, adults, and families to birds, science, and the many ways nature is intertwined in our daily lives.
