Workshops Schedule -- 5 Opportunities to Learn!

’Tis the season to start planning sketching workshops!  And because all good sketches start with a good foundation, these workshops I offer are called “Good Bones”!

I’m so thrilled to add that my book, the fourth in the series, The Urban Sketching Handbook: Understanding Perspective is already available for pre-sale on Amazon and Barnes & Noble.

Here is the schedule for upcoming workshops through June.
If you are interested in joining any of these workshops, please contact me ASAP by email to hold your spot!!

Pike Place Market workshops in Seattle:

March 4 -  5 + March 6 (1/2 day):  Good Bones | Perspective & Watercolor
This workshop devotes one day to learning perspective, a second day to watercolor basics, 
and a third 1/2 day to put it all together when sketching on location.
Days 1 and 2, we spend the morning working from PowerPoint lessons in a classroom at the Pike Place Market, then apply this to sketching on location in the afternoon. Sunday is a half day, when we’ll sketch and paint at the lovely restored King Street Station in Seattle.
Cost: $200, maximum 15 participants

April 9, Saturday: Good Bones | Watercolor
This one-day workshop focuses on the use of Watercolor in architectural sketching—materials, mixing colors with a simple palette, and quick techniques. We’ll look at lessons via PowerPoint in the classroom early in the day, then sketch on location in the colorful Market in the afternoon. There is nothing like watching someone paint in person for learning how!
Cost: $100, maximum 12 participants

May 13 -14 + May 15 (1/2 day): Urban Sketchers Workshop, Good Bones | Perspective & Watercolor
This workshop is offered in together with Urban Sketchers. 
Friday is devoted to learning perspective, Saturday to watercolor basics. We spend the morning working from PowerPoint lessons in a classroom at the Pike Place Market, then apply this to sketching on location downtown in the afternoon.
Sunday is an opportunity to put it all together as we join the monthly Seattle Urban Sketchers sketchcrawl from 10-1pm.
Cost: $200, maximum 15 participants

June 24 - 30:  DRAW CIVITA 2016 in Civita di Bagnoregio, Italy

ONLINE Sketching class:
Filmed this past August in Denver for Craftsy, “Perspective for Sketchers” is an inexpensive online course that you can view any time, from any device, as often as you want.  State-of-the-art filming and approach, albeit a little on the cute side :), Craftsy has tapped into Urban Sketchers instructors and offers several really great classes on sketching. To join the over 2000 (!) other participants worldwide in my course, please use this link for a course discount:  Perspective for Sketchers

Thanks for your interest in Sketching!  And please pass this info on to anyone who might be interested!
