Sept 23-25, Savannah GA : Sketchbook Drawing in Historic Savannah


Sept 23-25, 2016

We are offering a three day sketchbook drawing workshop in partnership with the Telfair Museums, held in conjunction with their upcoming exhibition One Hundred Years of Harmony: Paintings by Gari Melchers.

Taking inspiration from Melchers’ artistic depiction of domestic life, students will work on location at the historic Owens-Thomas House and other nearby landmarks. Through multiple demonstrations and hands-on exercises, we will practice techniques for selecting intriguing subjects and making rapid observational sketches. Students will develop a deeper understanding of composition and color, and receive individual instruction working with pen and ink and watercolor in a sketchbook.

The class is suitable for beginners, though advanced sketchers are welcome to come and work more independently. It is always a pleasure for other students to have experienced urban sketchers in the group.

Find out more about drawing supplies on my page for Sketching Gear, and please peruse the blog for many more articles on sketchbook drawing. There is a lot of info in these pages, but this series called “Direct-to-Ink” is a great place to start.

NOTE: the workshop is limited to 15 participants: Click HERE to Register with Telfair Museums!
