Would you like to draw, to capture what happens around you? The places you go? The things you see?
What if I told you that you absolutely can draw, even if you’ve never drawn before?
You’d probably say, “Sounds neat, but I’m not an artist…”
Everyone can sketch, even you. It could be argued that humans are actually born knowing how to draw.
That being said, modern drawing basics are learned, not inherited.
Fundamental skills, techniques, and knowledge of different media (ex: watercolors, pencils, pen and ink) can be taught, practiced, and improved upon. Thanks to this combination of your childhood aptitude and basic drawing techniques, anyone can learn to make a sketch.
Think of a travel sketchbook or a naturalist’s sketchbook, complete with colored sketches and handwritten notes.
Feeling inspired and ready to start sketching?

In this workshop, you will not only learn to sketch but also shading objects, how to make things look far away or nearer, drawing trees, buildings etc. The most important concept of perspective will be taught, which will help in drawing/sketching any subject.
You will also learn the technique of sight sizing and to use proportional divider for a better-proportioned sketching.
At the end of the workshop, you will be equipped with a wealth of knowledge with respect to

• Tools
• Sketching, Shading
