Event description

Description

Local science educator and zine artist Emilie Bess will lead youth, ages 10-18, in an exploration of the plants and animals that can be found at low tide in the Puget Sound. Students will explore the intertidal zone and do some drawing warmups to get the creative currents flowing. Then we'll create mini-comics and zines that feature our observations and questions, and info on animal behavior and life cycles. No drawing experience required. Supplies provided. Enrollment limited to 12 students (all students must register prior to class).

This workshop is part of the month-long Short Run Summer School program which features classes for artists (youth & adults) ranging in topics from drawing and writing techniques to professional development. These one-off classes are affordable ways to improve your practice. Summer School occurs every August at locations around Seattle.
