The Haystack Rock Awareness Program and the Cannon Beach Arts Association invite you to join Dorota Haber-Lehigh, artist, educator and instructor for her second workshop of the series. Celebrate an iconic Cannon Beach bird, the puffin by creating a whimsical portrait using colored pencils on walnut ink paper. You will learn how to layer colors and use loose textural mark making to capture the realistic eyes, texture of the beak and shiny hair. We will begin with loose sketching and studying the structure of puffin’s head and then with step by step guidance you will create a beautiful bird portrait. Not only will you get to take your special creation home with you as a special reminder of your time creating, you will also have contributed as a change maker for ocean stewardship!

Student Notes: Please bring a reference photo or two of the bird you intend to draw. Suggested size of the bird head is 4” by 4”. There will be photo references available for you during the workshop as well. All materials will be provided.

All artistic skill levels welcome.
All materials will be provided for class use.

This new series is made possible due to grant assistance from the OCVA, Oregon Coast Visitors Association
