Rhoda Sketching The Agra Fort

Sketching Fast & Loose™ Classes

Sketching Fast & Loose is useful for:

  • Capturing the essence of a subject
  • Developing observational skills
  • Making a colorful travel journal
  • Using “down time” to advantage: cafes, airports….
  • Stress release (Thanks to my students for that one)

Rhoda helps you develop skill in sketching what you see as simply and boldly as possible, using a few very basic art materials.

Rhoda demonstrates techniques suitable for beginners or intermediates who want to develop more confidence in drawing, as well as skilled artists who want to “loosen up”.

• Announcing my SECOND ANNUAL sketching Fast & Loose
