What you'll do

Urban sketching_A new way of seeing the city. Learn how to capture and translate what you see in an urban environment. No experience required. My illustration class will take participants into Durban's historical city center, where we will go through the fundamentals of Urban Sketching, step by step. The 3 hours course involves intensive drawing exercises, on-site visual exploration and discussions on the theory of urban sketching. The course is open to everyone, from beginners to skilled artists. Participants will be taken on a journey, concentrating on developing a unique way of seeing, along with techniques that will help create evocative and beautiful images. At the end of the session you will be proud to take your memory home. Paper, pens and pencils will be provided, but participants are welcome to bring their own sketchbooks along.
