Although European examples will be included, the emphasis will be on the exotic; from Giant Atlas Moths to brightly-coloured metallic beetles. Teaching will include a variety of observational and drawing techniques, using pencil, pen and watercolour. Emphasis will be on individual tuition and artists of all ability are welcome. The course will include a brief talk about the insect collection by Ed Turner, Curator of Insects at the Museum of Zoology.
