#About the event
Duration: 60 minutes
Join Sami in a fun, action-packed workshop where she will combine two awesome topics in life: deep sea animals and art! This interactive presentation will teach you all you need to know about what lives below the ocean's surface and why they have evolved to look the ways they do (even if it is pink and blobby). You will also partake in collective noun quizzes, step-by-step drawing tutorials, plus a bonus drawing challenge that will be perfect for those kids with wild and creative imaginations. So bring your pencils (and submarines) and get ready to dive into the deep!
