DZG’s animals and artefacts proved to be the perfect muse for a group of graphics students from King Edward VI College in Stourbridge.

Forty-seven students took part in an Arty Animals workshop in the Discovery Centre with DZG’s Presenters, where they were encouraged to use live animals and a variety of biofacts including skins and skulls to create their own works of animal art.

Presenter Caroline Howard, said: “The students spent a long time sketching or photographing the items which we had provided which demonstrated a huge range of different textures.

“We also provided a creature feature with a snake, chinchilla and bearded dragon, which they were again able to touch and see the various textures.”

Group leader, Stewart Monk, said: “A massive thanks to Caroline and her team for the enormous effort and passionate lecture related to the Arty Animals workshop.
