Winged Wonders - Illustrating Butterflies and Moths on Duralene

ID : 8613   
« back to classes page

Learn to capture the beauty and detail of butterflies and moths using Duralene, a semi-opaque frosted Mylar. If you have never used this product, you will be amazed at the luminous effects that can be created! We will use colored pencils and Duralene to capture subtle details and provide deep, rich colors. With a scientific illustrator, who lives and works on California's central coast, students will learn about butterfly and moth anatomy, get drawing tips and tricks for symmetry, and learn special techniques for using colored pencils on Duralene.

Students will go home with two to three finished illustrations of butterflies or moths, depending on the detail and complexity of their illustrations.

Your materials fee will include Duralene sheets. The Class letter details the other required supplies and materials.
