New Workshop Announcement for Beginning Sketchers-Sept. 22

If you missed my recent USK 10x10 First Steps into Visual Journaling Workshop, it’s not too late!

Saturday, September 22, urban sketchers and Historic Seattle come together for a day of sketching in the Meridian Park neighborhood.

Learn to sketch step by step

Learn the joy of sketching – and a new way to appreciate the historic buildings you love! This class is designed for inexperienced sketchers or those who have been away from their art for a while.
Instructor Michele Cooper will help you take your first steps into urban sketching using simple tools and practical tips that anyone can follow. Michele will demonstrate techniques, then you’ll try them. Perfection is not required. You’ll learn to combine basic drawing, writing, lettering shortcuts, and ephemera for a fun day on location with your urban sketchbook. These skills can be adapted to fill your nature and travel journals, too.
The workshop will begin indoors at the Good Shepherd Center, later the group will move outside to practice sketching the exterior of the Good Shepherd Center and its grounds.
The workshop is filling fast, but as of today there are a few spots left.
Follow this link for the workshop description, location and registration information.

After the workshop, please join Urban Sketchers Seattle for an optional “sketchcrawl” (2:30 – 5 PM) at Meridian Park to have more fun practicing your new skills!

One Inch Drawing a Day

The challenge:
The game is inspired by John Vernon Lord who, in 2016, did a drawing for every single day of the year. Each one is just one-inch squared and made with pen and ink on paper. 
His 365 miniature drawings are currently on show in John Vernon Lord: Illustrating Carroll and Joyce
