Learn how to carefully watch birds and then draw them, in two virtual workshops being offered this March on Facebook Live and theQuickLive.com.

"Observing Birds: Appearance, Sounds, and Behaviors" | Thursday, March 4 at 4 p.m.
Presented in collaboration with the Greenwich Audubon Center, the Fairfield University Art Museum (FUAM) invites patrons to tune in to "Observing Birds: Appearance, Sounds, and Behaviors" on Thursday, March 4, at 4 p.m., on Facebook Live. To view this virtual program, go to the Greenwich Audubon Center's Facebook homepage or the FUAM Facebook homepage when the livestream is scheduled to begin. You do not have to have a Facebook account to view and enjoy this online experience.

“When observing birds, there is often more than meets the eye,” said Carey Mack Weber, Frank and Clara Meditz Executive Director of the museum. “Whether you enjoy photographing, drawing, or painting birds, or you just enjoy the company of birds, it is helpful to understand birds’ overall natural histories."

During the Facebook Live event, Audubon Bird Education Specialist Ryan MacLean will “bring” participants outside to observe and listen for birds. He will also explain how people can contribute to the conservation of many bird species by participating in seasonal bird counts while they observe them.  

"How to Draw a Bird" | Tuesday, March 9 at 5 p.m.
On Tuesday, March 9 at 5 p.m., Suzanne Chamlin, artist and associate professor of studio art at Fairfield University, will lead a livestream workshop, "How to Draw a Bird", on thequicklive.com.  

Inspired by the FUAM exhibition Birds of the Northeast: Gulls to Great Auks, the workshop offers a primer to artists of all experience levels who are interested in developing their skills in depicting our feathered friends!

In partnership with the Residential College Program, FUAM will also be distributing 50 art kits (including pencils, drawing paper, colored pencils, and watercolor paint sets) to Residential College students, to inspire their creativity during the workshop and beyond.

Both workshops are free and open to the public. Learn more about the Fairfield University Art Museum here. Interested in studying studio art in the College of Arts and Sciences at Fairfield? Check out the program offerings or request information.
