Meeting Day

Saturday and Sunday



Do you enjoy spring in the city – colors and textures of blossoming trees and flowers next to intricate Boston architecture? Let’s go outside and see our beautiful city with fresh eyes! The focus of this workshop is on capturing the essence of spring and combining natural and urban elements in the sketches. You will be inspired to have fluid sketches, try different wet and dry media and use expressive color. Do not worry about rain, there are plenty of semi-covered areas in the city for us to use. For advice on which materials to get, please reach out before the workshop! No previous art experience is necessary.

Suggested places to sketch:
MassArt, Symphony Area, Boston Public Library, Boston Common, Faneuil Hall Marketplace, Waterfront/ New England Aquarium Area. The exact locations will be determined closer to the workshop and will depend on the weather.

The first meeting location will be posted prior to the workshop.  Students will also receive an email.
