Creating your own travel sketchbook is an enjoyable and evocative way to record your travel experiences. From detailed studies to quick gestural impressions, this class outlines techniques and methods to capture the essence of what you see on your travels. Fundamentals of perspective for rendering architecture and landscape, sketching figures, media and composition are all covered. Students put skills to practice by choosing a location and drawing as if we are travellers. Bring your own sketchbook and favourite drawing materials. Beginners welcome.
