Fears & Fables Drawing Night 

Adults in the Seattle-Tacoma area were invited to come draw from the collections at Slater Museum of Natural History at the University of Puget Sound. The specimens we drew related to Slater's upcoming Night at the Museum: a Halloween-themed Night about commonly-feared creatures and the myths associated with them. I chose one of these drawings to incorporate into the poster for this event.

Kathryn Anderson, an arts educator from Tacoma, drew this incredible owl from a taxidermied specimen.

I hosted a few drawing nights at this small museum. They were always really calm, easygoing events: everyone drew and talked about animals, techniques, and art and science projects; or just drew without needing to talk at all.
