  • UofM, St. Paul Campus


Registration is closed

Join us at the Raptor Center of Minnesota to hear about the center's fascinating work and learn from professional science and nature illustrator, Carlyn Iverson!

Raptors play an important role as top predators in their ecosystems. They help balance predator and prey, which promotes a healthy and diverse population of animals and plants.

Meet some of these denizens of the sky up close in a short program featuring raptors on the glove. Then, roll up your sleeves and prepare to stretch your artistic wings as Carlyn leads us in a hands-on mini-workshop on carbon dust techniques. Our models for this drawing and photography session will be a live bird of prey as well as raptor artifacts like feet and feathers. Carlyn will share her expertise, demonstrate carbon dust as a medium, and provide some of the materials for us to join in this fun and effective technique for rendering natural subjects.

Materials to bring:

  • sketch pad
  • your favorite pencils
  • kneaded rubber eraser
  • a few sheets of tracing paper
  • camera (optional)
