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”.
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
“Thank you for the wonderful sketching adventure. You provided us with so many inspiring opportunities to practice our sketching skills” Stephanie T.
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.
