Our goal, in the into to urban sketching, is to show you the basics and give you the experience and courage to sketch  in a coffee shop or market on your own.
There are many opportunities to travel the world and engage in urban sketching with group of sketchers. But for someone who never sketch before in public, or who may be a good painter but does not have the foundation of basic drawing, it may be intimidating to join others who are already doing it!
So we created this intensive course to help you learn the secrets of drawing from life and take the fear out of sketching. Especially for individuals who love to travel, or are looking for a fun hobby after retirement, or want to improve their art, this is a fun way to expend your experience.
Contact us asap with your travel schedule and reserve your spot.
While for the Sketching workshop we accept up to 12 participants, for the Intro to Watercolor we only accept 4.
