Join Amis Balcomb in a step-by-step exploration of landscape and simple perspective techniques to create unique landscapes. In this four-week Simple Sketch workshop, we will apply the art concepts of shape, line, composition, value, texture, specifically to landscape, and will apply 2-point perspective rules for a realistic result.

In these simple sketch sessions, the approach will be to accept where you are in your skill level, and to allow yourself to experiment using a water-soluble graphite crayon, a waterproof ink pen, and watercolor, on various watercolor and mixed media papers. Any drawing or painting experience is always a plus, but no prerequisite art skills are required. By applying the art concepts and experimenting with the media you will discover spontaneous imagery that appears. That will determine what you might do next. With each composition you will be able to exercise your creative thinking in where landscape elements go until you feel you have reached a finished piece. Each composition will increase your knowledge of the materials and give you ideas for your next landscape.

“It is rewarding to witness students expanding their creative thinking and art skills through the process of simply creating artwork. It is in the process of doing where magic occurs. The hand-eye coordination and fine-motor skills that are developed by using the art materials and tools in specific ways translates into refined visual problem solving that can be applied across disciplines.”
