Virtual Bushwick Inlet Wildlife: Sunset Silhouette

February 20 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm

Sunset Silhouette Template & Finished Work

Learn about the local wildlife around Bushwick Inlet and create fun artwork inspired by its creatures.

* A Zoom link will be included in the registration confirmation. *

Free registration required.

20-minute slideshow and talk, 40-minute relaxing art project suitable for beginners.

We’ll start at the top of the animal kingdom classification tree and make our way down to the tiny living creatures, plankton,  that are critical to not only animal life, but to human life as well.

Together we’ll paint or draw a colorful sunset or underwater scene and layer the silhouette of an animal over it.

Participants will receive a pdf to print out and trace. Or, draw your own animal silhouette.


  • Any color medium, such as watercolors, pencils, crayons, or pastels.
  • A black crayon, pencil, or oil pastel – anything that can go on top of your colors.
  • Printer paper, watercolor paper, or any art paper suitable for your medium.  8 x 10 as a minimum size suggested if using the printout.
  • Graphite or chalk for the tracing.
  • The printout or your own drawing to trace.


You’ll learn how to transfer artwork. The demonstration will use watercolors for the background and a black oil pastel for the silhouette.

60 – 90 minutes. Please have art supplies ready.

Taught by Monica Schroeder, scientific illustrator & kayaker.
