Amis Balcomb - Simple Sketching Techniques (Recording) - Free!

Date recorded: Sunday, December 20, 2020

Join Amis Balcomb for an hour of creative sketching using simple techniques and supplies. Working with a chunky water-soluble graphite crayon, waterproof ink pen, paper, paint brush, container of water and an optional watercolor paint set,  Amis will show you how to create spontaneous imagery, from landscapes and still-life objects, to hand-drawn fonts. She will also demonstrate how to use the full value range of darkest darks, darks, mid-tones, lights and highlights, organic lines and textured strokes. Feel free to watch or work along! If you would like to work along, choose your own compositions from your imagination or copy from images you like as an inspiration to make each composition your own.

“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.”
