All Levels
10 am - 4 pm
Instructor: Rosemary Connelly
Members: $75

Learn the art of Urban Sketching in this relaxed workshop focused on recording the world around you. Using a watercolor journal, pens, and simple watercolor washes students will learn tips and techniques for recording their adventures, whether it is in a restaurant, museum, beachfront, or big city. The focus of this workshop is capturing the moment on location, not creating a finished painting. Students will meet in the Museum’s studios before venturing outside to practice what they have learned.
