Michael Boardman, artist and avid naturalist, will lead a bird drawing workshop Wednesday, Oct. 26, at Maine Coastal Islands National Wildlife Refuge Visitor Center, 9 Water St. There will be two opportunities to attend, at 3 or 6:30 p.m.

Boardman will give an overview of sketching and drawing birds in pencil and watercolor, with a concentration on working quickly and accurately. Participants will have time to practice sketching or painting while he gives individual tips.

All ages and levels are welcome, and materials are provided. This event is free, although donations are gratefully accepted.
