CANCELLED Sketching & Beer with Julie Ho

CANCELLED Join artist Julie Ho for this fun and relaxing afternoon in the field. Incorporate art into your field notes! Learn the basics of field
sketching with tips and tricks that anyone of any skill level can adapt while
spending a lovely day at the Baylands Nature Preserve in
Palo Alto. Participants will explore color theory, composition, and how to
quickly and accurately record the world around them. Bring your own sketch pad
and watercolor paints or purchase a starter set for $12 on the day of the trip. 
In the fashion of the wine
and painting events that have become so popular in recent years, we will
provide free Lagunitas Beer for participants to add to our Bay Day
 A hat and a folding camp chair is recommended. An
artist from the 
San Francisco Bay Area,
Julie started her undergraduate studies in Biochemistry but rediscovered her love
for art in her second year and turned her concentration to creating art for
science communication. She completed her BFA degree in 
Pictorial Arts with a minor in Science from San Jose
State University
. During her time as an undergrad she taught
art classes in Los Altos, CA, where she found her passion for children's
education. Continuing her own education, she attended 
CSU Monterey Bay's Science Illustration graduate
program in 2016. Influenced by the changing climate and its effect on life
within it, Julie hopes to communicate local environmental issues through
illustrations for science education. She returned to the Bay for her internship
in Fremont at the 
Children's Natural History Museum.
Currently, Julie is working at 
New Museum Los Gatos (NUMU) as their exhibit and
graphic designer.

How to Fundraise Through Workshops: After you
have created your artwork, consider 
creating a fundraiser
 on your Facebook page using a photo of your creation and asking
people to donate a certain amount to SFBBO for each "like" it
receives. We can also create a page for you on our website where you can
showcase your work and ask for donations to support bird conservation.
