Drawing From the Collection With Artist Caitlin McCormack
Start Date: 5/6/2023Start Time: 2:00 PM
End Date: 5/6/2023End Time: 4:00 PM

Event Description

Join us for an artist talk from Philadelphia-based fiber artist Caitlin McCormack. McCormack will discuss how osteological displays of birds and other animals inform their work and delve into their process for developing their incredible crocheted sculptures!

Following the presentation, McCormack will bring out some of their one-of-a-kind artworks, personal artifacts and specimens pulled from the Academy's Ornithology Collection for an all-ages drink and draw. No experience making art? Not a problem.

McCormack will guide doodlers and experienced illustrators alike through creative drawing exercises. All art abilities are welcomed, and drawing materials will be provided, though we encourage you to bring your sketchbook if you have one. One drink is included with registration.
