FEARLESS URBAN SKETCHING

With Carla Baron Giller

In this 4 session workshop we will take the fear out of Urban Sketching by learning the basics in a small group. (maximum: 4 students) I know the fears that many of us have when starting to sketch in public.  I understand fully the fear of not knowing where to start a sketch and feeling overwhelmed by the subjects in front of you.  I also know only too well that feeling of ‘I’m not a good artist; I can’t do this; this is going to be bad!’

I’ve been there; I’ve done that.  But there is another way . . . .

GOALS OF THE WORKSHOP:

~         Learning how to observe

~         Learning how to look for major shapes and edges

~         Learning how to use minimal measured setup points to sketch in ink

~         Learning how to draw without feeling compelled to get the perspective ‘right.’

~         Learning how to feel comfortable sketching in public
