Tickets: Urban Sketching in Atlanta
$75.00 – $130.00
I am excited to be coming to Atlanta and look forward to sketching with this new USK chapter. You don’t have to be an urban sketcher or have attended a USK-Atlanta paint out to attend my workshop. It’s open to all those who endeavor to enjoy sketching outdoors.
I have two workshops allowing you to choose whatever works best for you. One, two or both.
The first workshop held from 9:30am-12:30pm, is tailored for those who’d like to share insights from my practice that have helped me overcome feelings of overwhelm or fear when sketching in public. We will go over some thumb rules of proportion, perspective and color palette. Think of this as a refresher course.
The second workshop held from 1:30pm-4:30pm, on the other hand takes those who would like to explore the topic of direct watercolor but want to share in my ways of controlling watercolor. This class will emphasize direct watercolor in a park/botanical garden setting with a strong lean towards landscapes.
Venue: Public Park in Atlanta <– It will be either Piedmont Park or the Historic Cemetery, I am currently investigating both options and am checking to see no new events are being held at either places for us to have our day there. I will update this listing + those who have enrolled prior when I confirm a location.
