Learn to Draw a Cheetah on ICD

Sponsored by: Cheetah Conservation Fund and John Muir Laws
Monday, December 4th is International Cheetah Day and a time to celebrate these magnificent animals and their uniqueness. Celebrate International Cheetah Day by learning a new skill! Learn how to draw a cheetah virtually, with John Muir Laws, an internationally recognized artist and educator ( John will share tips on how to draw these amazing animals in a close up portrait and a running action pose. As this event is online, participation worldwide is encouraged!

As the fastest land mammal, with the ability to go from 0 to 60mph (110km) in 3 seconds, cheetahs are the most unique of the big cats. Their speed, beauty and grace has won hearts worldwide, and December 4th, International Cheetah Day, we ask you to spread awareness of their plight in the wild. Less than 7500 individuals remain, in only 31 populations around the world. Cheetahs suffer from human-wildlife conflict, genetic instability, habitat and prey loss, climate change, and the illegal wildlife trade.

Join us on December 4th for International Cheetah Day to learn how to draw a cheetah and help us raise awareness and funds to save this magnificent animal in the wild. Become an ally for cheetahs, we look forward to seeing you online! (Repping your cheetah clothing items or merchandise is highly recommended!)
