Skill Level: Beginner to Intermediate

Learn to draw and get more out of traveling!  ‘Moment sketching’ is capturing the moment, expressing how you feel about what you are observing and sketching.  It’s the perfect approach for traveling, as it will help you become more observant and expand your traveling experience.

A wise man once said the only way to learn how to sketch, is to sketch!  Want to learn?  This class will introduce drawing and design concepts (line, shape, value, perspective, shade, shadow, composition) in a supportive atmosphere. The idea is to do a rough sketch that is not overly detailed, to simply observe and then sketch.  Don’t pressure yourself to be accurate (accuracy is for cameras) but rather to get into a rhythm and sketch from the right side of your brain. We’ll use the interesting architecture of local buildings in Marine as the subject of our beginning drawings.

This class is on 2 consecutive Saturdays:  May 16th, 2020 & May 23rd, 2020 from 9:00am – 12:00pm each Saturday.

The first of two half days will be spent in the classroom and outside, learning basic concepts.  The second half day will be focused on outside drawing in downtown Marine.   Those with some drawing experience who are looking to get back into drawing are also invited to join the class.

This class is open to adults and youth aged 12 and above.  Each youth must register separately for the youth rate, and  must be accompanied by a registered adult for the entire class.

Students to bring:

  • 2B and 4B pencils
  • Pink Eraser
  • Sketch pad (from 4X6 to 9X12)
  • Folding chair or stool (second day)
