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: 6 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
