Young Artist Spotlight: Urban Sketcher

Young Artist Feature: Summer

Summer joined us for Urban Sketching with instructor Scott Renk.

In this class students embarked on a hands-on journey into the world of urban sketching. Students learned urban sketching techniques and concepts, as well as experimental methods to find stories in the places we take for granted. The class sketched on location around the Artspace/Moore square area using a variety of media using pen, ink, watercolor, rubbings of gravel and asphalt, etc.

Did you like this class?

I did! It was really unique.  I enjoyed being able to walk around and draw what I saw.  It is nice to get out in the world instead of sitting in a classroom.

Did you learn anything new?

Yes!  I learned how to use watercolors, which I had not used before.  I also learned how to add shading to my pictures.

It did.  I met a lot of new people and I enjoyed being here.
