In celebration of International Day of the Seal on March 22, I’m sharing a workshop I taught on the two families of seals and sea lions.

In the video replay below of my live, online class, I teach you about the characteristics of these charismatic marine mammals, then I’ll show you how to draw a California Sea Lion in a step-by-step demonstration.

To get the most out of this workshop, I suggest gathering some paper and pencils and also printing the downloadable images below the video. Then get comfortable and settle in the watch the 60-minute workshop.
