Kingfishers are a lovely and fascinating bird. They can dive at speeds of up to 25 mph to catch their dinner. And you can quickly learn to catch the beautifully rich color palette and complex plumage of this beautiful, tiny creature. 



Capture the kingfisher's beautifully rich color palette and complex plumage in Amy's fun and relaxed class.



Mastering the use of contrast, you’ll create areas of light and shadow to accurately render surface textures.



Explore a range of mark-making techniques to capture different types of  feathers bathed in sunlight.

What they are saying about Amy's last workshop...

"I love Amy's teaching style, her explanations are clear and helpful. cat lovers should not wait and catch the opportunity to learn from her."
– Ines C

"This is my second drawing class with Amy, and I thoroughly enjoyed it. She is engaging and makes it easy to follow along with her. The tutorial was well thought out and well illustrated. The class was well-paced, and included breaks. I liked that the class was over two days. She provides helpful commentary if you post your drawing on Padlet... I would definitely take a class with Amy again!" 
– Susan T.
