Workshop Announcement: 2 days of Sketching in Los Gatos

I’m excited to announce a two-day workshop in partnership with New Museum, Los Gatos (NUMU) as a part of their series of artist-lead workshops.


This workshop is perfect for you if you are a) a beginner b) a sketcher who would like to cover more subjects in their books: architecture, people, everyday objects, we will draw them all c) a self-taught artist sketcher who would like to refresh their foundational understanding of value studies, color mixing, and perspective.

Here is a class description:

Visual Journaling and Urban Sketching with Suhita Shirodkar

An introduction to urban sketching and visual journaling designed for beginners and those with experience alike: We will explore drawing and painting in a sketchbook, a wonderful way to record life and the world around you. With the set of skills gained from this workshop, students will have a strong basis on which to build a journaling or urban sketching practice. We will touch upon a host of topics and techniques that go into working in sketchbooks: drawing everyday objects and people, learning perspective, understanding value and the basics of color theory and mixing watercolors. Students will combine all they learn and apply it to things they will capture in their sketchbooks, both indoors and outdoors as urban sketchers.
