Landscape Sketching Class in Umbria, Italy - 1 day:
<12>$600 (Lunch included)12>
has introduced this new one day Landscape Sketching Class in Umbria, Italy for anyone interested in learning
sketching techniques and keeping a sketchbook. The prerequisite is to have taken his 5 Day Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain Workshop or for those that already have drawing experience.
He will lead you through a practical hands on day of sketching landscapes and vistas, architecture and statues using a sketch book, and expanding
on the formal drawing instruction you have already received.
The class will start off in Spoleto, Italy and then we will move to the hills surrounding the city.
This will be an intensive and fun day of drawing. The countryside in Umbria is filled with beautiful views of rolling hills and will
s offer ample material to practice sketching
techniques. We will learn about atmospheric perspective plus linear perspective in a new and fun way. Sketchbook drawing is an art unto itself
requiring skills which can be taught; such as how to hold
the sketchbook, how to use the "basic unit" how to perform "sighting" while sketching. The variety of mediums include pencil, pen and ink
and a specific technique using an ordinary felt tip marker.
For those students who have not taken Mr. Bomeisler's 5 Day Workshop it will be helpful, in this class, to become acquainted with Chapters 7 and 8 in Betty Edwards' "The New Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain".
Elena had no prior drawing instruction prior to attending the 5 day drawing class in NYC— she completed the course and followed with the sketch class at the MET and these are her sketches:
