Taught by David Tenorio
Urban sketching differs from studio drawing by strengthening your connection to the world around you. Artist and urban sketcher David Tenorio shares his love for drawing people and places in public spaces.  In this class he’ll demonstrate how to work with Micron pens to create shape, light and ground, and how to apply these principles to any sketch. He’ll cover the basics of the body including proportion, rhythm and identifiers. Then you’ll learn how to draw foliage and architecture, incorporating perspective, linearity and distance. Finally, he’ll take you to Alamo Square park in San Francisco to sketch what he sees there.  
Learn how to:
  • Work with Micron pens
  • Use the cut-and-paste method for drawing people
