Drawings from the Naturkundemuseum

Here are some images from the really fun field trip that the Fall Drawing Workshop took to the Naturkundemuseum.  The assignment was to complete a "Drawing Scavenger Hunt," which consisted of many drawing exercises to be completed through out the museum. 

The first task on the list was to make a 5 minute Blind Contour Drawing of a dinosaur skeleton! A real challenge considering that the Berlin Naturkundemuseum has the largest mounted dinosaur skeleton in the world!!!

Other challenges included drawing the negative space between bones, making thumbnail sketches of various textures, and inventing a new species by combing parts from different animals! We started out as a group, and then split up to explore the museum and draw different animals.

Here are just a few images from the last class of the Fall Drawing Workshop. We drew portraits of each other, the students took turns posing for the class. Many of them turned out great!

yeah, Tom Cruise was in the class!

Thank you everyone that participated in the Fall Drawing Workshop! It was such a great class!!
