June Workshops: Vegas and San Francisco

After a longish break from teaching workshops, I’m back! Here are two workshops in June, one in Las Vegas and the other in San Francisco.

They might look similar at first glance, but read carefully: one is an Urban Sketcher’s workshop, taught on location and the other isn’t. Details below.


Capturing Chaos: Drawing a Crowd
An Urban Sketchers Workshop

Location: Las Vegas (exact location to be announced)
Date: June 11th, 2018
Time: 5:30 pm to 8:30 pm

Do you walk into busy crowded places and feel overwhelmed at the idea of drawing them? Is it hard to see where to begin a sketch of a place so full of people, movement and chaos? Do you wish you could capture the scene without being overwhelmed by it? This workshop will help you do just that by breaking down the process into a series of simple steps.



Gesture Drawing – People in Motion
A studio-based workshop

Location: Arch Art and Drafting Supplies (10 Carolina Street, San Francisco)
Date: June 23rd, 2018
Time: 1:30 pm to 3:30 pm


This is NOT an urban sketching workshop. It is specifically designed for those who find learning to draw people from life too intimidating. This class will introduce you to gesture drawing and teach you the skills needed for drawing lively drawings on location. But we’ll learn in the safety of a classroom, using still images and video. This should help you see, understand and capture figures that look full of life, so you can take those sills with you when you’re out sketching next!

Workshop fee includes the cost of instruction and a supply kit.



But first, I’ll be teaching this watercolor journaling workshop in the Santa Cruz mountains with Gay and Nina, and I’m super excited about it. (The workshop is full, but you can ask to be waitlisted)

All my workshop information is always available on my Workshops page. It’s looking like a pretty full summer schedule, so if you’re interested in requesting a workshop contact me to book on for Fall 2018 (September  onwards).

    I just left Vegas and I would have loved participating!!

    I went to the Neon Sign museum which was terrific and I highly recommend to visit if you have time if you haven’t already been there.
