From a Casper College press release:

The Tate Geological Museum will host a scientific illustration class taught by the museum’s master illustrator, Russell Hawley, on Tuesday, Sept. 15 from 6-8:30 p.m.

“We are very excited to bring ‘Introduction to Scientific Illustration’ to the community,” said Patti Finkle, director of museums at Casper College. “This class is perfect for those who have ever wondered how scientists and illustrators know so much about an animal just by looking at the bones. Russell will show those attending why one of the best ways to learn about and study an object is to draw it and then will give a brief introduction to drawing scientific illustrations and help students embark on a drawing experience of their own,” noted Finkle.

The class is for those 16 and older and costs $5 per person. Each student “will have the chance to draw authentic fossils taken from the Tate’s collection,” Finkle said. Supplies and an evening snack will also be provided, or students can bring their own, according to Finkle.

Seating is limited and the public is encouraged to reserve a seat by calling the Tate Geological Museum at 307-268-2447 or emailing Finkle at pfinkle@caspercollege.edu.
