Travel Sketching

Capture quick sketches of the woods and prairie at this beautiful Forest Preserve!

You love to draw; and you love to travel.  How best to combine the two?  In this class, you will learn  how to maximize your times as you sketch and draw the landscapes of your travels.  Emphasis includes:  how to extract your vision form the landscape using elements of composition; how to render basic forms of the landscape; how line and gesture are used to capture the landscape; and how color can be used as an exciting addition to your drawing.  Using water-based pens and colored pencils; students will begin their own travel sketchbooks inspired by the beautiful grounds of Ryerson Woods; based at the charming Brushwood Center.  Water-soluble pens will be available for purchase from Nina.

Cost:  $135
