On Saturday mornings in February 2010 I, Eva Casey, took a course for adults in animal drawing at the Harvard Museum of Natural History. The instructor was Erica Beade. I was the least skilled in the class but I still loved it, and have gone back since to draw from the countless specimens of taxidermy in that wonderful museum. The animal drawings below are from my sketchbook. I did some additional practice sketches from photographs, mostly taken by myself outdoors.
