A playful, no-fear sketching workshop where you’ll rekindle the wonder for drawing that you felt as a child.
Jeanne Kosfeld, the illustrator for the RCHS publication, Neighborhood Architecture: Irvine Park – a coloring book will share her love for sketching and show you how she approaches a complex scene on location.
You’ll leave with a new friend — your sketchbook, ready to give you hours of enjoyment wherever you are.
- Become comfortable with basic tools and techniques to enjoy sketching anything anywhere.
- Learn to see simple shapes in complex scenes, remembering childlike visual discovery.
- Create energy in your drawing with playful line movement.
- Gain confidence by working through a sketch from beginning to end and have fun doing it!
