July 10 & 17: Virtual Freehand Sketching for Architects and Artists

After teaching live freehand sketching sessions for many years, I am excited to announce my first virtual sessions with the Association of Licensed Architects.

Please join us 3 pm American Central Standard Time on Friday, July 10 and Friday, July 17 for virtual freehand sketch instruction on the Chicago River. I have a formulaic approach to teaching freehand drawing that works for all skill levels and backgrounds. We will enhance your ability to develop great compositions, using contour lines, value (contrast), simple perspectives, and thumbnail studies. The Association of Licensed Architects is providing Architectural CEU professional credits.
