Our learning workshop for young people aged 11 to 14 enhances their understanding of the needs of animals and the ways in which we can help to conserve their environment for the future.


Create and sketch a coral garden and draw incredible creatures. Extend your skills by practicing imaginative drawing and drawing from life using our interesting private collection. Our collection has been donated by past collectors or has been ethically sourced in-line with our principles as a conservation charity. This practical workshop covers both imaginative drawing and drawing from life, and allows students to extend their skills as they work with our diverse collection of marine life resources. The Deep can supply HB pencils & A4 copy paper, but you are welcome to bring your own drawing materials too.
