Mark Peck, The ROM’s head ornithologist ¬†welcomed Instructor Tina Seemann & Max the Mutt students to the ROM today. Animal Drawing groups spent the day in the study room drawing¬† bird skeletons and taxidermed specimens. Birds are the first creatures the Sequential Arts and the Concept Art students tackle. The students readily caught on and did brush pen studies, drawing the complicated skeletons with ease, focusing¬† on how the body sections are aligned and how these creatures balance themselves.

Everyone enjoyed the ‘behind-the-scenes’ tour with Mark. Thousands of birds are in storage at the ROM , many more than are on display! The ROM is a fantastic resource. Dr. Peck invited them to return to draw another day.
The morning group was sorry to have to leave, everyone had so much fun!
