Intro to Urban Sketching 101
Do you get inspired to sketch on the go, but don’t have time to always get a sketch in when you’re out and about? Intro to Urban Sketching will teach you not only how to sketch on-location in different atmospheres, but also how to sketch from your photos when you don’t have time to sketch in the moment.
In this class, we’ll talk about:
– The art of urban sketching and what makes it different
– The process of building a sketch and where to start
– Different materials to use while on the go
– Which colors to choose for your palette
– How to take a photo so that you can properly draw from it later
Then we’ll get to work on our urban sketching, you may bring some photos that you’ve taken that you find inspiration from if you'd like.
