Sketching on Location

When you sketch your surroundings, you see them in a different way than when you merely look at them. You closely observe the scene, and that builds new connections and pathways in your brain. You are very present in that moment, which contributes to stress relief and relaxation. Sketching is an ideal way to absorb, appreciate, and capture your surroundings, whether during a trip abroad or a quiet moment in your backyard. We will work on new techniques in class, then have field trips around Las Vegas to practice sketching on location. You may choose to use ink, watercolor, pencil, colored pencil, watercolor pencils, markers...whatever you prefer. Sketching is not about perfection, so beginners are welcome.
