CB Sketchbook Club » Drawing from Nature with Marjorie Williams-Smith
Join us for an evening of sketching and discussion with our online creative community! Each week guests will be led through an introductory drawing exercise by a guest artist. Grab your sketchbook or some loose paper and a pencil or pen for this hour long class that offers the chance to relax and connect digitally with friends as you explore the creative practice of sketching. Sketchbooks offer the freedom to experiment with materials, themes, techniques and to record the things that inspire you!
This week’s instructor, Marjorie Williams-Smith, will invite guests to use nature as the subject for their drawings. Thumbnails sketches will be used to quickly simplify the forms and lay-in a structure for a more refined study.
- Sketchbook or other drawing paper (12” x 16” or larger)
