Event Details

Learn enough to play for a lifetime! Pocket Sketching is the perfect technique for travel journaling, hiking, biking, sauntering, or sitting in the park. Capture a scene in 25 minutes or less using a water-soluble pen, a 4 x 6 inch pad of paper, and a small paint set. Ideal for the timid beginner to paint fearlessly in public, as well as the advanced artist who wants minimal equipment, total portability, speed, no interruptions, and no clean-up. This is a great workshop for new painters as well as experienced painters interested in plein air painting. All experience levels welcomed.
