In this two-day workshop, Instructor Pete Malaguti will show you the basics of Urban Sketching, with one-on-one demos. He'll cover how to depict various elements like cars, people, trees, buildings and a bit of perspective, in ink line and Watercolour.

Day One will take place in-studio at the Niagara Pumphouse Arts Centre.You'll delve into the basics, with the opportunity to try them out and get comfortable. You'll also be introduced to some of Pete's recommendations for easy-to-carry painting equipment.

On Day Two you'll get outside and try your hand at Urban Sketching in Niagara-on-the-Lake.

Whether you're travelling, or sketching around town, this is the perfect skill to capture a scene and moment, to remember. It's not a finished frame-able piece of art, it's just a sketch, and the perfect reference sketch for future paintings.

Relax, do your own thing, and have fun!

You enjoy Drawing. You don't have to be good, just enjoy doing it!
You've painted before with Watercolours.
You won't need all your stuff, just a brush or two and limited Palette.
