The first thing that comes to mind when you look at any travel image of Santa Fe is COLOR! The pinks and oranges of adobe houses, the bright blue of the New Mexico sky and the shiny reds and greens of chilis at the farmer’s market. Pack your brightest colors and join travel sketcher Shari Blaukopf for a five-day immersive sketching experience that is designed to capture the exuberance of this magical place.
As part of a small group, you’ll get a chance to watch plenty of demos and receive individual attention as we work on color, composition, people sketching, simplifying a scene, and keeping our watercolors fresh. We’ll focus on having fun while we sketch, recording as much as we can of Santa Fe, as we capture panoramas, street scenes and pueblo architecture. You’ll return home with a variety of skills to help you feel confident while sketching on location — capturing people, places and things that evoke memories of a time and a place — and return home with a fat book filled with fresh and colorful sketches.
