Course Description

Join Wandering Artist Lorraine Bell for a journey into the world of Urban Sketching. Lorraine has been keeping journals of her travels for nearly two decades and has learned to capture the soul of place through her sketchbooks and journaling – something that photographs can’t quite provide.

Learn to capture the energy of a place with expressive and loose line drawings without spending excessive amounts of time on them. Lorraine will also teach you to illustrate with colors and values using a variety of mediums that are easy to travel with like watercolors, colored pencils and more!
