Sip and Sketch in the Museum with artist Meg Lemieur

Date/Time

Nov 20, 2019
05:30 PM until 07:30 PM

Description

It’s easiest to draw animals when they’re holding still. The Wagner's immobile menagerie includes rapt raptors, flamboyantly feathered ducks, mice in various poses, hedgehogs and wild hogs, and monkeys and (skeleton) men.

Meg Lemieur explores issues of justice and the relationship between nature and the human impact in her artwork. To start off the evening, a taxidermy red fox will be Meg’s model as she briefly demonstrates her process for drawing animals and gives tips for drawing animals. Then, choose a museum creature to draw! Refreshments and Meg’s advice will be available throughout the evening. Registration includes a special Liberty Gin cocktail. Basic drawing materials will be provided.

About the Artist:

Meg Lemieur has spent much of her life focusing on justice and the relationship between nature and the human footprint. She uses graphite and ink while adding bursts of color with watercolor, acrylics and a digital flair. Lemieur’s work asserts gentle humor and motivating messages through her compositions of diverse flora and fauna.
