Look closely at a variety of insects using microscopes, and the naked eye, to examine their anatomy in detail. Ms. Kask will teach the best techniques for conveying the essence of these captivating creatures using pencil and paper, and provide tips for drawing from mounts and live subjects. You will receive a folder with information about scientific illustration and supplies for making your illustrations in the classroom.
