Sea Snail Studies

As part of an oceanography course, Ellen Gallagher spent a semester studying, collecting, and drawing small wing-footed snails called pteropods. Her time spent drawing these underwater creatures helped inform the work she makes today. In this workshop, we will look at images of underwater creatures, abstract them, and then transform them into mixed-media paintings using canvas, paint and Plasticine.
