Get ready for spring/summer sketch walks with this dynamic workshop! First, we’ll learn to use line to simplify an outdoor scene and lay out balanced compositions. Then we’ll go over how to add vibrant watercolor to bring your designs to life. Weather permitting, we’ll use these techniques to create a progressive series of sketches as we explore the local area. A sketchbook, fineliner, and kit of hand-poured watercolors are included in the class fee.
