As part of the Sedgwick Museum of Earth Sciences' Feminist Takeover Weekend, join artist and geologist Emma Theresa Jude to explore the Sedgwick's fossil collection through drawing, with an eye to famous female scientific illustrators of the past! The 2-hour class is suitable for complete beginners and non-artists as well as experienced sketchers.

We will begin with an exploration of the crucial role women as multidisciplinary scientists and artists played in the development of palaeontology, focusing particularly on historic women of the Sedgwick Museum. Emma will then lead the class through three exercises in charcoal designed to loosen up and improve confidence in beginner artists, resulting in a final piece in multi-tonal charcoal to take home.
