Lisa will start by modeling how she sketches birds in the field. Then, we’ll walk a short way looking for likely models–perhaps some lazy cormorants or sluggish night herons–and spend some time sketching them in their environment. Bring your sketching supplies–paper, pencils, colors.

Born and raised in California, Oakland-based artist Lisa Sindorf has a lifelong fascination with the wildlife and landscapes of her home state. Her interest in drawing birds began when she took a wildlife taxonomy class in college and found that the best way to truly know the study specimens was to draw them. She currently works digitally at home and with watercolor in the field.
