Summer workshop in Galway, IrelandPosted: November 13, 2015
I’ve always wanted to sketch in Ireland, so I’m thrilled to announce a new workshop from July 14-16, 2016. I’ll be joining my Montreal sketching partner Marc Taro Holmes and Irish Urbansketchers.org correspondent Roísín Curé for three days of sketching in Roísín’s hometown of Galway, Ireland.
You’ll enjoy two demos per day – seeing firsthand how we plan and execute a sketch on location. We’ll demonstrate classic urban sketching skills such as: how to see compositions in the field, sketching with pen and ink, tinting your sketches with watercolor, and even painting directly with color.
You’ll spend one full day with each of the three instructors. We’ll visit a different drawing location for each morning and afternoon. Every demo will be followed by a chance to apply what you’ve seen on your own sketches — with plenty of feedback from the instructors.
Join us and your fellow students for a meet-and-greet Wednesday evening before classes begin, then again each evening for a sketchbook show-and-tell, sharing everyone’s work from the day.
If you’re interested, all the registration info is on Marc’s workshop page. Hope to see you in Ireland!
