Class experience

US Grade 3 - 4
Students will learn what scientific illustration is, its purpose, significance and what types of scientific illustrations there are. They will also learn how to plan and create a balanced arrangement of elements on a page, and the principles of good composition. Drawing complex subjects will be taught through their breakdown into simple geometric shapes, using points to draw straight lines (freehand) as well as measuring using the finger and pencil trick. Students will learn how to sketch out the basic shapes by applying a small amount of pressure to get light lines (guides) and to apply more pressure when drawing the final outlines. The use of different line quality and shading techniques to denote volume will also be taught. Finally, these classes are a great opportunity for learners to learn curious facts about biodiversity, history, adaptations, forms in nature and the newest discoveries in various scientific fields. 
Nathaly has an MA in illustration, DA in archaeological illustration and has completed several accredited university and museum courses that specialize in natural science and scientific illustration.
