About the Event

When the wonderful Nigel and Sarah from OVAID (Orangutan Veterinary Aid) agreed to send us footage of Orangutans, I nearly lost my mind! It seemed too good to be true but here we are!

OVAID is a charity dedicated to providing veterinary equipment, medicines and practical veterinary presence and assistance to orangutan rescue groups and centres in Indonesia and Malaysia. They are committed to improving the resources for rescued orangutan and improve welfare with an ethos of "Always what is best for the Orangutan". We therefore feel proud to be supporting the wonderful work they do by donating HALF of all ticket sales for this event - this is drawing with heart and you too should feel proud of what your contribution will do!

This two hour online drawing session will comprise of recorded footage and still photography of young and mature Orangs so there is ample opportunity to stretch those observational skills as well as work on capturing the finer detail of the glorious great apes. 

Please note - although these sessions are essentially UNGUIDED, our tutor Holly will be suggesting exercises with timed footage - these can be completely ignored or you can join in to give yourself a creative stretch!  If you'd rather not listen to any of the talking you can put Holly on mute as all of the poses have a timer clock and you can see the length of each filmed/still section.

What to bring: as these aren't tutored sessions, you can draw with whatever takes your fancy!  We do strongly suggest bringing LOTS OF PAPER - although there will most certainly be longer sections of footage/stills later on in the session, the warm up sections can be very quick and a LOT of them!  You'll want to be able to move quickly, it's a fun packed, fast paced activity - sadly we just can't make those animals stay still for too long!

If you miss the session: If you're unable to attend the session through a mishap/error on our part, we will make sure you're provided with a link to the recording that will be uploaded to our website after this session has run - please let us know if that's the case.  We are unable to offer refunds or replacements for forgotten/missed sessions which are the responsibility of the purchaser. The income from the events we put on is used to pay for our brilliant models & photographers, the rent on our studio and of course to pay the salaries of the hard working folk who put all our workshops and events on.

PLEASE JOIN ONTO ZOOM TEN MINUTES BEFORE THE START OF THE EVENT TO GIVE TIME TO HAVE EVERYONE SETTLED BEFORE WE START, THANK YOU.
