Make it Wild: Gesture Drawing
- This event has passed.
Gesture Drawing with Kathryn Turner
Option to participate in a live, online Zoom class, or to purchase the recording afterwards
In this fun, hands-on class, we will do some gesture drawing exercises together. You will learn to make quick, simplified sketches of an animal subject. This process will improve your perception and skill in capturing what is essential about the subject. You will learn to capture energy, movement and action with a minimal amount of detail. This class will benefit you as an artist, no matter what your preferred medium and subject matter might be.
Make it Wild courses are open to adults and young adults with beginner to intermediate abilities. Participants will have the opportunity to ask questions during this interactive program. Registrants will receive a zoom link and list of inexpensive and easy to acquire art materials for use during the course.
- $35 per Live Online Class
- $20 per Recorded Class

About the artist:
The artwork of Kathryn Mapes Turner is closely tied to the mountain valley of Jackson Hole, Wyoming. She was the fourth generation raised on the Triangle X Ranch in Grand Teton National Park. Here her consciousness of the natural world began.
Turner began studying art in her teens from noted local painters. She attended the University of Notre Dame, majoring in Studio Arts. She spent an influential semester in Rome, Italy, and studied at the Corcoran School of Art in Washington D.C. Turner has a Master’s degree from the University of Virginia.
Having been passionate about painting since childhood, Turner is now nationally recognized with top honors from the American Impressionist Society and the National Academy of Equine Art and the Southeast Wildlife Exposition as the 2017 Featured Artist. Her list of awards and recognitions continue to grow.
