DC Sketchers visited the Smithsonian Zoological Park, otherwise known as the National Zoo, on a cold but sunny Saturday morning. We began with a discussion of a shared reading from John Ruskin's 1857 text "The Elements of Drawing". Ruskin's thoughts about Composition (pp. 244-268) framed our investigation of the zoo's Asia Trail and The Birdhouse.
