Bird Brains – Drawing From Experience
Site: Lotherton Hall
Art, Science, Literacy
This workshop is led by museums staff.
A two-hour interactive tour of the Bird Garden with an opportunity to look at and draw from life some of our birds. Great for improving observational skills and understanding design-for-purpose.
Feed your students imaginations and develop their investigative powers by running a completely cross-curricular visit to the Lotherton Bird Garden. Use Art and Design and the observation drawing of the birds to look at the scientific principles of variation and classification, adaptation and local habitats.
Workshop is supported by the Carnival of Colour Colouring Book with 12 exotic birds from our collection, line-drawn for your children to colour in at school or at the Bird Garden, with information about each and a world map to plot where they come from. The Gascoigne family who owned Lotherton travelled extensively as part of the diplomatic service. Why not visit the Hall at the same time to explore the different collections from around the world?
