Field Breaks  Art Club

On-line workshops to inspire and motivate

Sketching buildings

March 19th 10:00am to 11:30am

Using a buildings and street scenes, we will use this to practice our graphic drawing skills and mark making techniques. Drawing experience is not especially necessary, as “cheat” sheets will be sent out before the class. In this workshop we will learn how to choose a good subject and break a complicated looking street scene down into manageable chunks. Once the workshop is over, be inspired to wander about outdoorswith a sketchbook and scribble happily all day.
