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)

The dates are October 28th to November 4th, 2017. Enrollment is limited to 5 people. For your convenience, materials can be provided for additional $50. I have rented a fantastic airbnb apartment steps away from the craft market, only two or three blocks from most of the other sites we will want to visit…and sketch.     THIS WORKSHOP IS FULLY BOOKED!

I am offering a second session in San Miguel, for the week of November 5th – 12th. Fee is $450, includes two sketching sessions per day (five days), frequent demonstrations, handouts, personal coaching and friendly critiques. There is ONE more space available! A deposit of one-half the workshop fee ($225) will secure your space.
You’ll need to book a flight to Leon, Mexico (BJX) for November 5th.and get a shared shuttle for the 1.5 hour ride to SMA. Classes will begin the next day, November 6th and finish on the 10th. you’ll have one extra day to sketch, explore, shop or relax on your own, then fly home on the 12th.      DUE TO A RECENT CANCELLATION, THIS WORKSHOP STILL HAS ROOM FOR ONE MORE!

Good news! I’m offering TWO MORE 5-day workshops for SMA locals only: November 13 -17 andNovember 20-24, 2017.
