ARCHITECTURAL SKETCHING                                
$80 | mon 4.09 - 04.30.2018 | 10am - 12pm | 4 weeks

Spartanburg is filled with beautiful old architectural buildings including churches, office buildings and homes. Join us and take advantage of these surroundings as we become urban sketchers recreating these gems with quick loose renderings in pencil, marker and watercolor washes. Students will learn to draw architecture and the outdoors successfully by understanding the basics of perspective and the fundamentals of composition. This class will cover how to choose a compelling view point, what details to leave in and what to leave out, how to suggest building materials, simulate foliage and create a vignette.

Sketching will begin in the classroom working from photos and progress to plein air (outdoor) sketching in downtown Spartanburg.
