The tiny details that make the lure so attractive to fish also makes beautiful art. In this session, artist Mary Jennings guides you through several ways to make sketches and renderings of many delicate fly fishing lures. Taking inspiration from the NSLM’s extensive collection of beautifully hand-tied lures, participants study, sketch, and color using pencils, pens, and watercolor paints.

Recommended Materials:

  • Variety of pencils
  • Variety of drawing and water color paper (blank note cards work great)
  • Colored pencils
  • Watercolor pencils
  • Watercolors
  • Optional: gauche and bottled inks
