Introduction to Travel Sketchbooks

$95 Purchase required to enroll

We all take photographs when we travel, but they are fleeting moments captured in our phones. A travel sketchbook is a way to record important memories with words and visuals. This documentation slows down your thoughts and describes your trip with more detail and emotion.


You will learn basic quick sketching techniques that will help you find your style. Perfection is not the goal, taking the time to reflect and draw has more power than a perfect sketch.

There will be an introduction to perspective, techniques for capturing a space or object quickly and insights into light and contrast. We will use pen and watercolor and create a small sketchbook for you to use during the class. There will be two classes held at MAXT and one meet up in Peterborough where we will sketch on location. Practice is encouraged during the week between classes, but not required.
