The Artistic Journal: Sketching from Daily Life

Adult
Instructor: Marc Taro Holmes
September 23-25, 2016, 9am – 4pm
Members $350/ non-members $375

In conjunction with the exhibition One Hundred Years of Harmony: Paintings by Gari Melchers, Telfair will offer a three-day sketching workshop with Urban Sketchers.org correspondent Marc Taro Holmes.

Taking inspiration from Melchers’ artistic depiction of domestic life, students will work on location at the historic Owens-Thomas House and other nearby landmarks. Through multiple demonstrations and hands-on exercises, we will practice techniques for selecting intriguing subjects and making rapid observational sketches. Students will develop a deeper understanding of composition and color, and receive individual instruction working with mixed media and watercolor in a sketchbook.

Montreal based artist Marc Taro Holmes is a plein-air painter, educator, illustrator, and sketchbook artist working in ink, watercolour, and oils. He is the author of the how-to art book The Urban Sketcher: Techniques for Seeing and Drawing on Location, from North Light Books, four Urban Sketching DVDs and workbooks from ArtistsNetwork.TV, as well as online classes Travel Sketching in Mixed Media and Sketching People in Motion from Craftsy.com. Since 2009, Marc has been a correspondent for the international website of reportage artists urbansketchers.org. He has worked as an Art Director and Concept Artist for video game and motion picture studios such as Microsoft, Electronic Arts, Sega, and Disney.

You’ll find advice on drawing, notes on painting experiments, reviews of new materials, and news about the wide world of location sketching.
