SUCK ON SUMMER GOODNESS: Sketching at the Zoo

By Michael Swan on July 5, 2010


Some people are just not "people" people. Some people are dog people, some are cat people and some are just plain animal people. If you are an animal person, at least 14 years old, and a desire to be an artist, here is the event for you. Artist Susan Massey will teach you the basic elements of art as you draw animals at Point Defiance Zoo and Aquarium. No doubt Massey will prove that most animals share a remarkable amount of shapes and characteristics. Massey will also probably suggest you dress similar to the animal you'll be sketching for the best animal facial expressions.

The cost is $85 person, which includes zoo admission.
