Jim's Sketching Workshop Comes to Fort Worth!

We've received many requests in recent months to bring one of our sketching workshops to the DFW area.  We're delighted to confirm our Spring workshop date:
When:  Saturday, May 6, 2017, 10:00am - 1:00pm
Where: Fort Worth (Location details TBA)
Class size:  Limited to 15 people, in order to allow for one-on-one interaction.  Class will be filled on first-come, first-served basis
Cost:  $75.00  Pay through PayPal (send through Friends and Family option to patti@townscape.com) or by check to James Richards, 3344 Hamilton Ave., Fort Worth, TX.  76107.

To register:  Send an email to patti@townscape.com to reserve a spot.
We will have 1 hour of classroom instruction, followed by 2 hours of sketching on location.  Walking to different venues will be involved.
The focus of this workshop is capturing "life between buildings," where architecture​ acts as a stage set, and the “players”—people in motion, vehicles, street furnishings, trees, birds—act in concert to bring life and energy to the scene.  We’ll explore a number of strategies and techniques to capture this exuberance in a sketch:
  • Dynamic composition
  • Drawing people first
  • Intensifying proportions and perspective
  • Connecting dark shapes to create rhythm and unity, and
  • Thoughtful use of color for emphasis and mood
Make plans to join us!  If there is sufficient interest, we can add workshops to Friday or Sunday of the same weekend.  Cheers!
