These popular drawing classes give you the opportunity to study and draw details of feathers, beaks and claws from a large collection of taxidermied specimens in a fun and casual atmosphere.

Classes run from 10:30 AM to 2:30 PM and will break at noon for a bring-your-own lunch and informal critique. During each class, instructor Kathy Hodge will explain basic anatomy and offer demonstrations, assistance and advice.

Program fee per session: $25 per adult; $20 for museum members. Pre-registration is required. Program is limited to 12 persons; please sign up early to guarantee your spot. To register or for more information, please call (401) 680-7221 or email mnhinfo@providenceri.gov.
