    • Drawing live animals of any type can be a very challenging subject.  Birds especially are constantly moving.  How does one attempt to render them?  Come to this workshop and learn how to combine fast sketching with quick observation! Observation is key to drawing animals.  You will learn just how important it is to keep your eye on the subject and not your paper.  You will also learn how to focus on parts of a bird first, rather than the whole portrait.  Basic avian anatomy and topography will be discussed.  Photographs and mounted specimens will also be used but be prepared to spend time outdoors.  Weather depending, one hour will be devoted to practicing from life. No prior drawing experience is necessary!
    • Program Fee: $5/member and $20/non-member.

These traditional tales of wonder are full of entertaining lessons and are a gift and legacy for future generations. It is a celebration of the beauty and simplicity of human imagination and the power of community.Faulkner is a member of The Bad River Band of Chippewa Indians in Odenah, Wisconsin, his mother’s tribe, his father was a Shoshone Bannock tribal member from Fort Hall, Idaho. Leland has been a performer for over thirty five years. His parents were part of the U.S. Foreign Service and he grew up with an international background living in Afghanistan, Iran, and Africa. His performances have added to his world walking journey, as he has appeared in festivals and on tours all over the U.S. to Canada, Russia, Japan, China, Hong Kong, Spain, and Turkey. Experiencing life in multiple cultures inspired the title for this very personal program Walker Between Worlds.
