Sketching Class - 1 day San Francisco
The Palace of the Legion of Honor $42512>
Brian Bomeisler first introduced this one day class at the MET
(Metropolitan Museum) in NYC 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 students through a practical hands on day of sketching using a sketch book, which expands on their formal drawing instruction.
The class in San Francisco will take place at the amazing Palace of the Legion of Honor and will be an
intensive and fun day of drawing. The museum has a wealth of material to use for reference, including the 2nd largest collection
of Rodin sculptures in the United States.
The galleries in the museum offer ample material to practice
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" and 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 definitive, 4th edition of the New York Times bestseller "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-these are her sketches:
