Let's Go Sketching
Instructor: Michael Murphy
Skill Level: Beginner to Intermediate
Join local artist Michael Murphy in this 4-week outdoor class, observing and sketching the world around you. Each class, we will visit a different location in and around Hendersonville, where we will become keen observers, finding beauty and interest in the everyday. We will learn to interpret what we see using various creative approaches to sketching - from quick sketches to thoughtful studies. Technique and basic drawing concepts will be integrated throughout including value, color, vantage point, and speed. We will also touch on the integration of text, both visually and contextually, as we think about creating sketchbooks that not only document what we see, but are also an expression of our personal experience. Instructor, Michael Murphy will share the sketchbooks he has created over his lifetime to serve as inspiration and as a reference point for what is possible with a trained eye, pencil and pad.
