Urban Sketching | Starting in January & In April

In this class, students will practice documenting the everyday parts of life through a journal. The main focus will be exploring different techniques in urban sketching while covering basics in composition and typography. The goal is to document what you see visually. Demonstrations, handouts, and individual feedback will keep you inspired to keep capturing your world, long after the class is over. If this is always something you've wanted to learn to do, come with no previous experience.
