Architectural Sketching Workshop in Civita, Italy July 5-10

Sketching in Civita di Bagnoregio!

Hi Sketchers,
Some of you may know that I have been an architect and architectural illustrator for 25 years both in Seattle and New York City.  I have also been teaching perspective sketching for most of that 25 years--for a decade at Parsons in New York, briefly here at UW, and for a number of years at Cornish College of the Arts, as well as workshops directly to architectural firms. I also recently won a fellowship to France and will be in Paris for 3 months, sketching and painting architecture and landscape every day!

Also this summer, I will be teaching an architectural perspective sketching workshop in the amazing town of Civita di Bagnoregio, ancient pedestrian-only hill town about 60 miles north of Rome.  Planned together with NIAUSI, the Northwest Institute for Architecture and Urban Studies in Italy (the same folks who have awarded fellowships to Seattle Urban Sketchers Dave Boyd and Anita Lehmann), we will have the opportunity to stay in the organization's beautifully restored, stone facilities in Civita.

The workshop promises to be amazing, and if you have ever wanted to really LEARN perspective, this is your opportunity! We will be sketching the charming streets, piazzas and buildings of Civita, the farmer's market in Bagnoregio, the hills and orchards in the valley below, dining al fresco in the garden, and more.  We'll cover perspective, pencil and pen sketching, and watercolor (I recently qualified to become a signature member of the Northwest Watercolor Society).  And because this is the first year we are offering this event, it will be fairly short, very reasonably priced, and the group will be very small, 5-7 people with lots of one-on-one instruction.
