This half-day workshop will cover all basic concepts of sketching, gesture drawing, pen and ink, and watercolor. The class will provide students the foundation needed to establish a daily sketching practice. Students will head outside to work on how to capture buildings and people, build a loose sketch, add ink and finish with watercolor.

Supplies: All students will receive a watercolor travel set, water brush pen, fine line Sharpie and a small watercolor sketchbook (total value: $45) to keep. Snacks are provided, and participants are encouraged to bring their own lunch.
