PLAZA Workshop: Topics: Crowd Scenes: Populating Your Sketches with Jeb Brack

Register here, or bring $30 to Plaza before class.

In this Topics workshop taught by the Urban Sketchers Cincinnati group, you’ll learn how to sketch crowds of people. A convincing urban sketch needs people to give it scale and action. Learn how to populate your sketches quickly with any number of humans, from a few bystanders to a huge crowd.

These 2-hour classes are for the beginner or seasoned artist who is looking to expand on new techniques, learn a new way of sketching on the go or sketching from your photos later on.

Recommended materials to bring with you are:

– Any sketchbooks or materials you currently use including:
– A pencil
– Eraser
– Watercolors or another media of your preference
– Brushes or other tools you use depending on the media of your choice
– A few of your photos to sketch from

If you don’t have many materials that you currently use, not to worry. We’ll show you around Plaza Art for our favorite materials.
