"Dinotopia" creator teaches students his craft

WAUSAU (WAOW) -

The artist behind a series of drawings showing dinosaurs and people living together is teaching students his craft.

James Gurney, creator of the Dinotopia exhibit at the Woodson Art Museum, worked with a group of fifth graders at the museum on Thursday. He taught them how to draw with colored pencils to create their own dinosaurs.

"Talking to them about the whole concept of this fantasy world where people and dinosaurs live together, what it would be like to live there, and also about the process of doing a realistic painting of something that doesn't exist," said Gurney.

Gurney will also be at the Woodson Art Museum on Saturday guiding a tour of the Dinotopia exhibit from 1-2 p.m.
