Hello everyone,
I'm pleased to announce the Scientific Illustration Master Class -
co-sponsorted by the GNSI and Humboldt Institute (formerly Eagle Hill Field
Research Station). I'm even more pleased to announce that Frank Ippolito
will be the instructor.  Information on the workshop follows.

Hope everyone is enjoying the holidays. -Karen Ackoff

Guild of Natural Science Illustrators Master Class
August 9-15, 1998

In this co-sponsored workshop, participants will be guided by a
professional artist as they proceed from rough sketches to finished,
full-color illustrations. Instruction will begin with a focus on selecting
subject matter, conducting research, and keeping a detailed field
sketchbook. Studio fundamentals, such as composition, rendering form, and
working with value and color will be stressed. Portfolio preparation and
demonstrations of mixed-media techniques are planned for the evenings. The
small size and relaxed atmosphere of this workshop will facilitate
interaction between the instructor and the participants. Participants with
beginning to advanced interests are welcome.
