On-line workshops to inspire and motivate

Sketching Churches

April 12th 10:00am to 11:30am

Looking at a typical country parish church for inspiration, we will use this to flex our drawing skills and graphic mark making techniques.  In this workshop we will learn how to choose a good subject and to simplify complicated perspective problems into easy shapes, freeing us from getting bogged down with technicalities.

Once the workshop is over, you will be inspired to go out and find more subjects to fill your sketchbook.  Suitable for all abilities, as a "cheat sheet" will be available to help you out if you are not confident at drawing.
