Instructor: Charley Parker 
Members: $85

Urban sketching can be a great way to explore the visual world around you, express yourself creatively, and enjoy the company of likeminded sketchers in casual outings. This two-day outdoor workshop will introduce you to basic tools and techniques for urban sketching, as well as covering more advanced topics like how to draw what you see more accurately.

Topics will include choosing a subject; arranging a composition; sketching in pencil, pen, markers and watercolor; understanding basic perspective, and judging proportions when sketching houses, streets and commercial buildings. The sessions will include a demo by the instructor. All experience levels welcome.
