The Art of Travel Sketching, with Kristen Olson Stone

December 14, 2022, This is a 1-day class from 10 am-3 pm.

Community Resource Center
587 Palm Canyon Dr., Suite 125
Borrego springs, CA 92004

People want to paint and draw but have been afraid or discouraged. So even if you're new, this is for you! I'll demonstrate, step by step, a method that will help turn anyone into an enthusiastic watercolor sketcher with no experience needed at all - it's fun too, so take out your sketchbook anytime, anywhere. This relaxed style of travel sketching teaches you how to put down what you see around you, it could be your morning cup of coffee, the view from your window, a tree, a gate, absolutely anything that catches your eye.  I'll also show you how to draw and paint from your favorite travel photos. 

Travel sketching enhances the experience of being wherever you are in the world.  It can become a regular part of your life as well.  I'm not kidding; people love the idea of being able to free their creativity without worrying about ruining their clothes. The beautiful part? You don't need expensive, bulky supplies either, your entire sketching kit can fit into a small purse or bag, ready anytime.  Absolutely anyone can learn to sketch; it's the perfect thing for complete beginners as well as experienced artists working in other mediums such as oil and acrylic.  Bring along your favorite travel photos or iPad, or you can enjoy the park for inspiration.  You'll learn a skill so you can create your own sketch journals filled with lovely memories of places you love, who cares if they aren't perfect, they're just for you anyway!

Pack a lunch and take a break whenever you feel like it.

Kristen will begin the class with a morning demonstration, then for the rest of the day she will offer individual help to each of the attendees. This will be a small class so you will get a lot of personal help. Minimum 7 students and maximum 12 students.

Kristen is an artist ambassador for Royal Talens, she will bring some samples from Rembrandt paints for all participants.
