Put down your cell phone camera and pick up your sketchbook!

"Urban Sketching" can be a wonderfully satisfying way to record impressions and memories of your travels and experiences, especially in a colorful city like New Orleans. But urban sketching doesn't have to happen in a picturesque city setting. It can happen in your car, in a coffee shop or bar, while you're sitting at at a bus stop or in the laundromat, anywhere you can carry a sketchbook and a few basic art supplies.

In this one-day workshop, we'll talk about finding the materials that work best for you, how not to "overpack," choosing the right location (or letting it choose you), working "fast and loose," composition, perspective (and when to ignore it), overcoming your fear of drawing in public, practical topics like safety ("where do I stand?") and much more. Students will then step outside for a sketching “scavenger hunt” with a list of subjects and concepts designed to encourage observation and creative problem-solving, and to make sketching fun again. Students at all skill levels are welcome.

Most of this workshop will take place outdoors. If you have trouble standing for long periods of time you may want to bring a light folding chair. In the event of inclement weather the workshop will be rescheduled.
