ArchiSketch Chicago will be participating in the 10th anniversary commemorating the global community of urban sketchers. Around the globe, ten on-location classes are being offered in across three themes: little, medium and great stories. The 10X10 celebration runs from April 15 – June 17, 2017 in Europe, Asia, Africa, Oceania, North American and South America.
The USk Chicago chapter has a full (and intensive) schedule of classes led by instructors with varied backgrounds; artists, illustrators, architects and designers. All with a mission of sketching the world, one drawing at a time.
Overall goals for classes/workshops are:
- Show stories from your city, one drawing at a time;
- Improve your drawing skills;
- Learn how to select, frame and design visual stories on a page;
- Learn how writing and drawing can work together to communicate more to your audience;
- Experience the advantages of group learning and seeing the many paths to success.
ArchiSketch Chicago will be conducting its Lincoln Park Zoo & Garden Workshop, as part of the Medium Stories-Expanding Your View lineup on Saturday, May 27, 2017, 12 p.m.-3:00 p.m.
This workshop will focus on the late 19th and early 20th century architecture and social aspects of visiting Lincoln Park Zoo and Garden and its ongoing preservation for future generations.
Buildings selected for Lincoln Park Zoo & Garden Workshop are a reflection of nearly 100 years of design. Variety of architecture styles and structures to sculptures and landscaping. Changes that continue to make it a popular destination each year.
Sketching exercises will be tailored to highlight best features of each building. Workshop participants can expect to learn and draw:
- Light & shading
- Volume & mass
I’ve set up an abbreviated INVITATION ONLY preview of this workshop, to be held Saturday, April 8, 2017, 10 a.m.-11:30 a.m. (Free.) If you are interested, please email me directly.
