Draw your fine feathered friends at Seaside library

A drawing of an owl by local artist Dorota Haber-Lehigh

A bird-drawing class with local artist and illustrator Dorota Haber-Lehigh takes place 1 p.m. Saturday, March 17, sponsored by the Friends of the Seaside Library. Sign up at the circulation desk or by phone. Participants will create a whimsical portrait using colored pencils on walnut ink paper. Folks in the class will begin with a foundation sketch, and then learn how to transfer their drawing and layer gentle colors using colored pencils. Loose texture application and color blending will also be a focus. All levels of artistic ability are welcome.

Bring a reference photo or two of the bird you intend to draw.

Haber-Lehigh received a bachelor of arts degree from Pacific University with a focus on printmaking and art history. She designed, illustrated and published a children’s book, “ABC of Native Plants of the Coastal Pacific Northwest,” works on books about native berries and wildflowers of the Pacific Northwest. She is a member of the Oregon Botanical Artists and Native Plant Society of Oregon.

The Seaside Public Library is located at 1131 Broadway St.. For more information, call 503-738-6742 or visit seasidelibrary.org.
