SKETCHING WORKSHOPS

The following is a sample of my Summer Workshops. Every season is beautiful here, so feel free to contact me if you are interested in scheduling a private or group workshop of your own.

THE ART OF SKETCHING
at the beautiful shores of South Lake Tahoe, CA with illustrator, Kristen Schwartz



Anyone can draw. It's a matter of truly seeing rather than merely looking. Whatever your skill level, sketching will increase your ability to translate what you see and feel into powerful visual representations.



 


TURN EVERY DESTINATION INTO AN ART RETREAT:

Our brains work rapidly to translate what we see into efficient symbols so we can react quickly. This is great when danger is present, but some of us forget to turn that function off when it's time to relax. If you learn to see by sketching, you will automatically switch your brain into a more relaxed mode, a skill that will reduce stress and benefit all areas of your life. Sketching will allow you to enjoy the present moment by truly seeing and connecting with everything around you.

Surrounded by the serenity and beauty of Lake Tahoe, Kristen will teach many different approaches to seeing and capturing all types of subject matter in ways that no camera can do. You will be astonished at what you will accomplish and your sketchbook will become a memorable keepsake of your experiences.
