These workshops combine the history and of the architecture and its location in the overall urban setting. Plus, drawing instruction to highlight key characteristics of the building and its location.
ArchiSketch Chicago workshops adds a new dimension to urban sketching and sketch crawls with the presentation of the architecture, styles, details and story that each participant can add to their own sketches; creating their own stories to share with friends and on social media.
The series of workshops, developed by Joann Sondy, is a culmination of her passions: architecture + drawing. “ArchiSketch Chicago is an opportunity to bring your sketchbook and pencils to learn more about iconic structures, learn or push your drawing skills to new levels and share what you’ve done with the growing global community of urban sketchers.”
Drawing upon her experience leading architecture tours, Joann conducts in-depth research about each building or structure, the neighborhood and history to create a theme for each workshop. Workshop themes might emphasize the built environment, key building/style characteristics, select time period or location.
Additionally, Joann Sondy is a storyteller, employing her skills and training to entertain and educate. As a designer who specialized in presentations and publications, she never let go of the art school training and skills to fill pages of her own sketchbooks.
ArchiSketch Chicago are in-depth workshops which introduce drawing skills and techniques, along with historical narrations of Chicago’s architectural legacy, styles and their connection to its rich cultural heritage. During the ArchiSketch Chicago workshops, participants will visit multiple locations, allowing ample time for sketching based on instruction customized for each stop.
