As you stroll through the streets of the city, and by “city” we mean anything from a quaint little village seemingly in the middle of nowhere to a booming metropolis that goes on forever, you are struck by the backdrop and enraptured by not only the physicality, but the essence of the scene in front of you. Sure you could snap a pic, but would that really capture the ambiance? Why not tap into your inner artist and tell the story through your own unique artistic impression? Learn how through this Urban Sketching Course.
Drawing or painting urban scenes has undoubtedly been around since, well, there were urban scenes to be drawn or painted. But it wasn’t until 2009 that a Spanish journalist and illustrator named Gabriel Campanario established Urban Sketchers as a nonprofit organization in order to, among other things, connect people around the world who draw on location where they live and travel, thereby promoting its practice and increasing the popularity of the art.
The primary function of urban sketch was once described as “not to be beautiful, but to capture what it feels like to be human.” Like many art forms, urban sketching allows for your own release of expression, to interpret what you see in your own way. Furthermore, art in general has been known to reduce stress and create a sense of calm. And the best part is you can really do it anywhere, as long as you have your sketchbook and materials at hand.
Join the community of urban sketchers by enrolling in this 2022 Urban Sketching Bundle. Whether you’re just starting out or are looking to improve your skills, you will be guided through ten courses, each focusing on a particular subject, including drawing a classic American 1940 Harvester Truck, a delightful village scene, a historic English city scene and a charming Tudor style building, culminating in a Certificate in Urban Sketching. Taught by Ian Fennelly, himself an urban sketcher who proclaims to “make art in a busy location while looking at buildings and street furniture,” these courses provide the knowledge, technique and ingenuity to create beautiful pieces of art.
Lifetime access to more than 20 hours of training and 10 workshops is regularly priced at $319. This bundle can be yours today for only $39.99.
