On vacation, many travelers take photo's; some keep a diary of their impressions. But, a sketch of what you see and feel when experiencing the moment can provide a long-lasting record that stimulates your "play-back" description. This course provides students of all levels an opportunity to practice sketching impressions, on the spot and from photo's, along with instructor demonstration and instruction. At first, a pencil and sketchpad will be used to capture stationary objects then, we will graduate to create movement of shapes and finally, add sensory impressions. As confidence increases, students will be encouraged to add pastel, ink or water color to complement the memory of movement. There will be plenty of opportunity to experience inside and outside the classroom. You may find a masterpiece grow out of your thumbnail sketch with time and instructor oversight. This sketch may be all you want or need to tell the story of your experience.
