This class is for those of you who are fascinated by the natural world and would like to try (or perfect) your hand at drawing and/or painting its denizens. Liz Fuller is a scientific artist-in-residence for the Fuller Evolutionary Biology Program of the Lab of Ornithology. A gifted artist, she has illustrated many scientific papers for the lab.
