What is the point of drawing while you travel? Gosh, that is easy. So that one can truly see that which is around you. Drawing forces one to slow down and to really look at and appreciate the world. Drawing connects you to the places you visit; it creates a very intimate bond. Sure, it would be so much easier to take a snap shot and keep moving — you’d sure get to see a lot more that way! But the memory would be just that, fleeting. This is not true when you have taken the time to draw the places you’ve visited. When I look back through my visual journals, I recall the sounds, the smells, the feel of the breeze or the heat of the sun… I recall everything about those moments. When we draw something, we create a relationship with it.

9:30-4:30

In this class you will learn useful drawing and page layout techniques that will inspire you to capture the world around you with your own vision. After completing the ink/pencil sketches, we will focus on some basic color theory with watercolors. Finally we will spend the afternoon learning in depth my unique illustrative style of applying watercolors and colored pencil to your visual journals.
