Draw wildlife and artifacts displayed throughout the Manitoba Museum’s nine immersive galleries. From the Arctic to the Prairies, discover a wide variety of potential subjects, conveniently located under one roof. Best of all: they stay still!
Museum staff will kick things off with a short presentation about the making of the Elk Diorama. A selection of taxidermized animals will brought out and directions to key points of interest provided. This will be followed by unstructured time to sketch. At the conclusion of the program, the group will come back together to share.
