The more technology is integrated into our lives, the cooler low-tech activities like sketch-booking become. It’s time to enjoy the simplicity, growth, and delight that comes from sketching. This eight-week class will introduce you to keeping a sketchbook and assist you in developing your own methods. This class will provide a strong introduction to drawing and watercolor techniques, while helping you develop the habits of incorporating sketching into your daily routine. Artists of all levels are welcome.


Plein Air Group

Members $40 / non-members $65
Instructor: Kip Bradley
Register for the Plein Air Group class at Telfair Museums

The tough part of painting isn’t always the “how to” but sometimes just the “when.” Set aside a regular time to meet and ensure time is taken each week to create in a safe and social atmosphere. This noninstructional group will meet each week in a different location to execute paintings in plein air. Work in the media of your choice and have the opportunity to see how others work as well.
