Quick Sketch workshop debuts

The first 3-hour quick-sketch workshop I offered at Riley Street At Supply on Saturday, August 18th was attended by four students, with experience ranging from none to intermediate. After a half-hour or so of preparation, we went out to sketch at two very different locations within two blocks of t he store. Mission San Rafael Arcangel provided the opportunity to sketch traditional architecdtural forms and palm trees in full sunlight. The City Plaza area offered scenes including small storefront eateries, umbrellas over outdoor seating, and modern buildings.

I learned a great deal about helping beginner students avoid some common pitfalls. As for more experienced artists who want to loosen up,  there are some helpful hints for them, too.  From a practical point of view, my materials list will have to include a wide-brimmed hat, sunscreen and water supply. I plan to offer this workshop on a regular basis (monthly?). Stay tuned.
