Urban Sketching Workshop in Perth: 'Getting the Best from your Concertina'

If you are reading this from Australia, especially Western Australia, and you are a fellow sketcher, or someone who would like to learn more about how to be a sketcher, this is the post for you! 

As part of my residency at UWA, I am doing two full-day workshops in Perth, on different aspects of urban sketching. They will be on Sunday March 18th and Saturday March 24th. I will cover different things each time, so you can book one or both - they work independently of each other.

Both workshops will be suitable for anyone, from beginners through to more experienced sketchers. They will start and finish on the UWA's beautiful Perth campus and will include a picnic lunch. The first workshop is now ready for booking. You can find out more details and get your place secured here 

I will be sharing lots and lots of tips to help you feel more confident with sketching in a concertina, as well as loads of ideas for different ways to use them. I have also hand made a watercolour concertina sketchbook for each person who takes part in the March 18th workshop.

Details of workshop no 2 (which will look at different techniques for sketching quickly) will follow very soon. Watch this space!

I love the idea of the desk drawer portrait and potential variations on the theme. Glad you are enjoying your residency!
