Online Workshop: Art Meets Science – Charcoal & Watercolor Seahorses

At Zoom

January 16, 2021 / 3:00 PM–4:15 PM

Expand your art skills and science knowledge from the comfort of your own home. In each class in the Art Meets Science series, we brush up on some cool science and then introduce new art media and techniques with a fun interactive workshop. Supplies are available for curbside pickup at the Museum or can be shipped to you (registration closes earlier for participants requiring shipments).

Dive into the fascinating world of the Giant Pacific Seahorse with marine scientist and Sea Center Volunteer and Interpretation Manager Sam Macks Franz, M.M.A. Learn about the unique anatomy of seahorses, how they reproduce, and the cute way these nozzle-noses vacuum up their food! Then follow along with artist Hilary George to draw your own seahorse postcard, using charcoal and a splash of watercolor.

Supplies provided: watercolor brush, charcoal pencil, two watercolor paper postcards, practice paper, selected Koi watercolor pigments in paint palette, and washi tape.
