Drawing Workshops in Barcelona - Hurrah!

I have been trying to do too many things at once (again). All a wee bit stressful, but I can't complain, because it's all fun stuff and I would so much rather be too busy than not busy enough. 

One of the jobs I've had to get done was some high-res scanning of these drawings from my sketchbooks. They are needed as publicity images for 3 days of sketching workshops I am doing this summer in Barcelona. Yes, I know - I told you it was good stuff! 

I was thrilled to bits when, a couple of weeks back, I got the fantastic news that I have been selected to be one of the instructors to deliver on-location sketching workshops at this year's Urban Sketching Symposium. The competition was fierce this year so I put in my application, but really didn't expect to be accepted.

My workshop will be Sketches That Sing: Creating Drawings with a Life of Their Own. It is one of 20 workshops being delivered by some of the top on-location sketchers in the world! As you can imagine, I am awed and honoured to be amongst them. You can read about all the workshops on the symposium website as soon as everyone's info has been uploaded by the Urban Sketchers team. 

Anyone can attend the symposium and take part in 5 different workshops, as well as lots more. As long as you enjoy live, on-location sketching, you can register for a place. Registration opens in March and will cost $395 but, if you fancy it, you will need to be quick - places are expected to go like hot-cakes.

If you have not heard of the Urban Sketchers Annual Symposium before, you can get a pretty good idea of what it's all about by reading my posts after last year's symposium in Santo Domingo:

Sketching in the Mercado
Workshop with Nina Johansson

Colour-Games workshop with Jason Das

or even from the year before in Lisbon
