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.
Materials to bring to class:
– 2B and 4B pencils
– Sketch pad (from 4X6 to 9X12)
– Light foldable lawn chair
We highly recommend you bring a lunch as this class does go over the lunch hour.
No experience needed.
Students ages 18 and older are welcome to attend this class.
