Many people have started to draw from photos, but can struggle when trying to imagine or drawing from real landscapes, objects, buildings or people. This class helps you learn the skills that can make urban sketching or plein air artwork much, much easier.

The problem is a little surprising: although we all look all the world all the time, and you might think art requires special abilities you have or your don't, that's not really true. And although it takes artists' methods to really see with good accuracy and proportion, the good news is these skills aren't about talent. It's about learning everyday seeing: drawing, sketching and doodling and practicing art based on the real world around you. This class shows you how to look carefully at the real world that you see every day, and to begin to sketch it successfully, more quickly and accurately, using nothing but your eyes, a pencil and paper. It will give you basic good art practice skills: drawing from life, drawing everyday, making LOTS of mistakes, letting yourself experiment and take risks.

Not only will your drawing improve, but your ability to fully see the world we live in will grow. And all it takes is a few basic skills and regular practice. As a student of mine put it, "last week I just barely noticed random forests.. today I can't NOT see real trees."
