Sketching Fast & Loose™ Classes

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)

Sketching Materials

See a list of required sketching tools, here >

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”.

Students have said: 

“Thank you so much for your exhilarating and informative class. I enjoyed myself very much and have come away with a multitude of new ideas, things to practice and a new confidence to drawing in public.”  Moira L

The technique you teach is fascinating and fun. Your choice of venues and subject matter for each class gave me a broad spectrum of sketching opportunities. Your ability to keep us on track and yet able to enjoy one another was perfect.  Your expertise, your patience, plus your  enthusiasm and appreciation for the community you and I have chosen to call home, combined beautifully in assisting me in my sketching endeavors. Who wouldn’t want to be a Fast & Loose Woman of San Miguel! Gracias Chica! Cheri Rae 

Rhoda’s workshop was a real game-changer for me —  she totally helped me to get out of my head and stop worrying so much about my lines. Meagan B.
