Eagle Hill Masthead

Scientific Illustration Seminars

student drawing Since 1987, Eagle Hill has been offering seminars in the natural history related arts, mostly focusing on media used in scientific illustration (such as pen and ink, carbon dust, silver point, acrylics, pastel, watercolor, etc.). Guided by a professional artist, participants proceed from rough sketches to finished works in media of their choice. Participants learn to appreciate the importance of fine composition while preparing and interpreting preliminary sketches. Lectures, discussions, and demonstrations provide background information that encourages knowledgeable experimentation. The small size and relaxed workshop atmosphere facilitate interactions among the instructor and participants, allowing the instructor to individualize the instructional program for the week. Participants with different skill levels are welcome. Participants may let instructors know ahead of time what their special interests are.
