WORKSHOP

This is class 1: Sketching 101
(here is class 2.)
(here is class 3.)
(here is class 4.)
(here is class 5.)

In this class we will start at the basics of sketching. This class is for the total newbie as well as for those who wish to become looser and more confident in putting their lines on paper. It is an excellent foundation for the other classes to come.

We will cover topics such as what to look for in an object when we sketch it, how to become confident in contour drawing as well as using line weight and texture to add volume and interest. We will also cover simple ways to add value on the go and darken certain areas for interest.

This class will consist of many short exercises and demos as well as plenty of time to draw a larger piece synthesizing all that’s been covered in the end.

The will take place at a Letterpress Studio in the Dogpatch and we will get a unique chance to draw the fascinating machines. As a bonus, we will personalize our sketchbooks with a foil stamp!

A material list, handout and further details will be made available after sign up about a week before the class.
Number of students: min.8/ max.15
