We’ve all heard of urban sketching, a lovely art form creating quick rough sketches while on location, walking around the city or parks. 

It’s more about the essence of the moment and the fun process than a polished end result.  

Normally these sketches fill notebooks along with comments and thoughts about the places visited and can become a beautiful memory log of our trips. 

But let’s try urban sketching from the comfort of our own home!

In this class, Emilie will show us how to get started sketching, even for those who have never picked up a pen. 

What will we cover?

  • Intro to sketch art and drawing basics
  • Tips and tricks for quick sketching
  • Inspiration ideas for daily sketching from home
  • We’ll all get started on a few sketches to get us going.

What will I need?

  • Notebook or just paper if you prefer
  • Pens or pencils
