About this session

Are you a detail oriented perfectionist? Yes, you know you are, and this is the perfect session for you to develop your spontaneity and creativity.

In these fun sessions we produce many pages of art, in a change of pace from our usual session where we focus on one scene all afternoon.

Creative sketching
What do you see first? A lion? A Zebra?

Each time you take this session you'll produce many pages of different content.

Creative sketching
We started this sketch again with a zebra, breaking it down to a triangle and a rectangle. Then we added scenery and elephants, all referenced to pictures one of my students took in Africa. So we end up with a montage that suggests something of the animal life and scenery in Africa. Nice!

Creative sketching
All of this from the 3 Cezanne shapes: Triangle, Circle, Square that we learned in Sketch 101: Engrave your memories

Creative sketching

As well as the more "finished" sketches we will do very fast work in order to develop specific skills.

Creative sketching
Five super-fast sketches of a pear. Here we are practicing: movement, iterative learning, imagination.

Creative sketching

  • Circles
  • Composition
  • Counterpoint
  • Cross Hatching
  • Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain
  • Flow State
  • Focal Point
