Instructor: Kath Macaulay Date: October 20, 21, 22 Time: 9:30am to 4pm Price: $350/ $315 (Add $40 at the time of the class for supply kit) Download Supply List Description: This quick-draw technique allows anyone to “journal” wherever they are using only a 4 x 6 art pad, a pen, a small paint set, a brush and a film canister of water. Perfect for hiking, sitting in a café or standing in line — take it anywhere, whip it out in a minute, and preserve a memory in 25 minutes or less. With a pocket sketch it’s more about capturing the “feel” of a place rather than simply taking a camera image. This workshop is ideal for timid beginners who want to fearlessly paint in public, for experienced artists who want minimal equipment with no clean-up, and for anyone wanting a truly intimate record of what you think you see. http://www.pocketsketching.com/
