Pocket Sketching as seen on PBS

Mondays and Fridays
April 26, 30, May 3, 7, 10
3:00-5:00 PM, Eastern Daylight Time via Zoom

This quick-draw technique workshop with artist Kath Macaulay is perfect for hiking, biking, sauntering or just sitting in a roadside café. Capture what you think you see in 25 minutes or less using a water-soluble pen, 4×6 inch pad, and a small watercolor paint set. The five-session virtual workshop includes basic techniques anyone can learn and is ideal for timid beginners who want to fearlessly paint in public, and for experienced artists who want total portability, speed, and no clean-up. Each session begins with 15 minutes for social interchange, a demonstration, time to work, supportive evaluation, and homework, which will be evaluated at the beginning of the next session. Sessions are recorded and available for two weeks so you really "get it." 

Content for five online sessions
Session one:  Watersoluble pen and perspective of contrast.
Session two:  The pen with color, perspective of color, simple color wheel
Session three:  Landscape, focal point, from photo 
Session four:  Landscape, the use of wax and scraping from photo
Session five:  Landscape, simplifying and capturing quickly, your photo or mine

Classes are interactive with instructive demonstrations and critiques, both given in a very positive manner in each session. Expect homework using your photos or mine each session. Recordings available for two weeks to enhance learning.

Student Testimonial:
"Now I have attended all 3 types of your workshops: traditional  live workshop, Covid-19 mask and distancing workshop, and Zoom workshop. (Toss in your great PBS program showing here, and I guess that makes 4 types!)

In a nutshell, you made Zoom the best of all worlds! No travel. No hotels. Still, great lessons.  Full-size sketchpad on my computer screen.  I can totally see what you are doing, and we could ask questions as you went along.

Excellent individual critique of sketches while sharing with great people.  More time to spend on “homework” to try different things., Good time frame of  five hour-and-a-half lessons , plus a half hour for socializing before class. Having the lessons available for two weeks made it easy to review and catch up when I had a conflict.

Thanks for bringing your workshop to Zoom and my computer." ~ Jan Palm
