Drawing a Crowd
Learn the basics of drawing a crowd. Start with some basics of people sketching and then move to exploring some principles and techniques you can use to capture crowds. This class is taught in a studio from photos that will be provided but it is geared towards teaching you to draw and paint on location. Each participant goes home with a finished 8×10 inch watercolor, pen & ink sketch of a crowd.
If you are a sketchbook artist, an urban sketcher, or just interested in learning to sketch people fast, this class is for you!More details and signup at the link below.
Location: A Work of Heart, 176 Race Street, San Jose
Date: Friday November 15th, 12:30pm-3:00pm

About the Workshop:
This is a rare opportunity to learn location sketching from three Urban Sketchers doing what they do best!
Suhita Shirodkar (USA) will teach quick sketching of people in motion.
Stephanie Bower (USA) explains the basics of perspective sketching.
Shari Blaukopf (Canada) teaches her masterful use of watercolor.
Format: The workshop will be taught through 4, 3-hour sessions over the two days. For each half-day session, we will divide registrants into three small groups of no more than 12 participants each. You and your group will take the first 3-hour lesson with one instructor, then rotate through two more half-day sessions until you’ve had a class with all three teachers.
In the final afternoon session, we’ll put it all together in a joint sketching class taught by all three instructors. We are also adding an optional opportunity to join other sketchers on Sunday morning, May 17, for a Sketching Meet-Up that is open to all sketchers! (Yet another chance to cement what you have learned.)
Additional information about locations, recommended sketching supplies, and more will be sent to registered participants at a later date.
