Born Free Foundation - Keep Wildlife in the Wild

Jane Lee McCracken

Professional artist Jane Lee McCracken has put together an inspirational workshop ‘Drawing for Endangered Species’ which shares her great passion for drawing and animals with school students and has pledged to donate 25% of each workshop fee to the Born Free Foundation.

Inspired by her recent drawing series ‘In Homage to the Last Great Carnivores of Eurasia’, Jane brings a small exhibition of her beautiful and intricate Biro drawings to the classroom, encouraging students' drawing skills and the study of art and symbolism, whilst delivering an interactive discussion about endangered species, threats to their habitats and wildlife crime.

Positive ways to help save endangered species are discussed through an exciting hand out sheet and students are given the opportunity to celebrate the beauty of endangered and threatened species through an expressive drawing session using Biros.

 “I have a philosophy to try and give back what I can to the people and animals I depict in my work, because without them I couldn’t make my work. Children possess a natural passion for drawing.  In creating this workshop and sharing my own passion for Biro drawing and endangered species I hope by enthusing children to express themselves, through drawing, it will create a longer lasting awareness of threats to wildlife and habitat loss through art and education.  To have the opportunity to fundraise through these workshops for the exceptional and inspirational Born Free Foundation is not only a privilege but the realisation of a wee girl many years ago!”
