Sketching the Channel Islands: A 3-Day Adventure


Imagine three days and nights of drawing and painting, hiking, cruising (and if you wish, kayaking and snorkeling) around the rugged Channel Islands.

We are chartering the boat for a three-day journey around Channel Islands National Park off the coast of Santa Barbara, California. Cost includes three night’s stay aboard with freshly-cooked meals. Gay, Nina and Suhita will teach classes aboard the boat every morning. We will cover quick sketch, nature journaling, gouache and watercolor, journal layout and other techniques. We will have a naturalist on board to escort us onto parts of the island that very few people ever see with plenty of time to sketch and paint images of our journey.

Excited? I am! Join us? Limited space on this one, and special non-sketcher pricing if you want to bring someone along.

REGISTRATION OPEN (with early bird pricing!):

  1. Wow!! I found your workshop for Oct. 10th in Urban Sketchers and wanted to sign up, but everything looks full. I live in San Rafael and I am an oil painter, painting mainly outdoors, and particularly enjoy painting in urban settings. I am trying to elevate my pen and ink with watercolor sketching abilities and would love to get into one of your workshops. Please add me to your email list. Fabulous work!! Thanks, Stu
