Online Workshop 11/28: Architectural Drawing - Draw the World Around You

This class is a time and space for people of all levels to learn how to draw the world around them. With artist Meg Adler's guidance, you will learn pen-drawing techniques and tips. We will immediately put our new drawing skills into practice by sketching we see in real life and photographs. Come ready to loosen up your hand, your sense of “perfection” and your spirits through good, old fashion, drawing. 

We will start with an intro to line drawing/cross-hatching and what Meg calls "improv drawing" and begin with some warm-up doodling and loosening the hand. Once we’ve learned some techniques, we will observe our surroundings at home and draw what we see. Then we will check-in and see how our drawings came out, sharing strategies, ideas, etc.

We will finish with a drawing session together, looking at a shared image and sketching a more in-depth piece!

Choose between two booking options:

1. Supply your own materials! For this class, you will need paper, a pencil, a pen, and a sharpie. You will also need a sketchbook or some loose paper and a clipboard or hard surface to take with you to draw!

2. Purchase a drawing Kit from us that includes:

  • a 9”x12” Strathmore drawing pad
  • an Ink pen 
  • a pencil
  • a sharpie

This online workshop takes place on Saturday, November 28th, 11:00 AM - 1:00 PM PST via Zoom Meeting. You will receive login instructions before the workshop.
