Urban Sketching

Urban sketching is an exciting, creative form of journaling for artists of every skill level. Students will learn techniques to simplify this task and make it a relaxing way to document the world around them. Class will be conducted in the art room to give time to develop perspective and proportion skills.

Supplies: Journal or drawing paper; HB Pencil; Black pen such as a black ultra fine point sharpie marker.

After 2 sessions, students will have the opportunity to join our Urban Sketching Group in drawing downtown Ypsilanti. In September, an art display at the Ypsilanti Township Community Center will feature this work.

Urban Sketching Group (No cost – see above class information underlined)

Summer months are a great time for artists to get out of the studio and sketch outside. Club Members will have the opportunity to sketch until 1pm, then get together to share their work with the other artists over lunch (bring your own lunch to enjoy after sketch time). This is time where growth and knowledge builds, by seeing what others are doing, sharing skills, and opening minds to new things.

In September, Urban Sketchers will display their work at the Ypsilanti Township Community Center for people to view and vote on their favorite piece of art. Awards will be given at the artist reception held Friday, September 21, 2018.
