Paris 2015, sketch 5

A three hour workshop, going over architectural principals, to sketch buildings with confidence.
Atelier: Croquis d’architecture

Saturday, November 4th, 1-4 pm.

Fee: $45 (supplies included)

A three hour workshop, focusing on sketching urban spaces and building interiors in perspective. The class is for all levels, meant to expand your knowledge of foundational perspective sketching concepts.
Julie will help you simplify buildings in order to gain knowledge and understanding, and even draw in great detail. The workshop will cover capturing different points of views, simple to complex sketches of spaces, and move into light, shade, shadow of space as well as colour (pencil crayons and watercolours).

The workshop will cover technical aspects of developing your sketching abilities as well as developing atmospheric components of spaces and buildings.
After this workshop, we will meet at a later date to sketch in Toronto, in one of our cities’ beautiful settings!
