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.
This class will begin at The St. Francis Inn and we will be walking the
streets of St. Augustine sketching the streets, buildings and sculptures of this historic city.
The town has a wealth of material to use for reference, including 17th, 18th and 19th Century buildings and many large public scultptures. You may want to consider bringing a small folding chair
and a hat. We will be outside most of the day.
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 New Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain".
Here are some sketches that Brian Bomeisler has done recently in St. Augustine:
