Rhoda’s Sketching Fast & Loose Techniques
are so useful to:

  • Capture the essence of a subject
  • Develop strong observational skills
  • Remember travel and other important life memories
  • Use “down time” wisely: waits, cafes, airports, etc.
  • Integrate into other visual mediums (sketchnotes, graphic recording, graphic facilitation and other visual ways of working)
  • Get ‘in the zone’ and stress release!

Rhoda demos techniques suitable for both beginners and intermediates who want to develop more confidence in drawing. As well as skilled artists who need to “loosen up” in order to work faster.

Sketching Materials

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

Supplies are included in select classes.
