Grab your pencils, paper and a beer and join us for a virtual drawing class that connects nature, art and you. Notable artists bring their perspectives and insights to depicting our earth’s flora and fauna, past and present, in weekly, hour-long sessions. Focusing on topics from mighty dinosaurs to powerful plants, captivating fish and more, each four-session series provides lessons on the history and structure of four species, plus great conversation and educational instruction with your favorite beverage on the side. All skill levels welcome!

Studio Drafts: Drawing Dinos
Tuesdays, February 2, 9, 16 and 23
8–9 p.m.

Whether you are a beginning artist, experienced sketcher or just a lover of suds and ‘saurs, you are invited to join us for a series of four dino drawing opportunities led by renowned local paleo-artist Jason C. Poole. All you need is a piece of paper, pencil and a beer (paper and pencil optional). Jason will take you through the basics of fleshing out the world’s most iconic dinosaurs while sharing real facts behind their discovery and eventual return through a dinosaur uprising. (Our lawyers say we cannot officially confirm or deny that a dinosaur uprising may or may not, but definitely will, be happening soon).

Grab your favorite drink, sharpen your pencil and join us for one or all four February sessions! Here’s what we’re sketching (click a date to register):

Sign up for the whole four-session series for two awesome opportunities:

  • A chance to vote on what dino Jason will draw for the fourth session
  • A chance, every week, to win Jason’s actual sketch from class!


Per session: $20 nonmembers/$15 members
Four-session series: $70 nonmembers/$55 members
