Workshop 3: The Poetry of Speed Sketching

Instructor:  Barbara Weeks

Description:

The poetry of speed sketching is to confidently capture the essence of a scene quickly, simply, and still tell its story.

Learning Goals:

This is a workshop to learn to focus and quickly sketch the fleeting moments of our daily surroundings.  We’ll work on a series of timed sketches, learning to focus on what captures our attention, simplify it, sketch quickly, and capture the moment.  The exercises will build from line sketches to adding value and color.

Supplies List:

Minimally:

  • Pencil or pen (waterproof ink)
  • Sketchbook
  • Watercolor, color pencils or coloring medium of choice
  • Portable stool (optional)

Since we will be sketching outside, all supplies should be portable.
