[Outdoors] Sketchbook Journal Provincetown

With Aaron Thompson. Monday-Thursday, June 27-30, 9am-12pm. Members: $200, Non-Members: $220.

Provincetown is rich historically and visually, providing a host of plein-air subjects ideal for improving drawing and watercolor techniques.

Participants will meet to record their observations in sketchbook form on daily outings to significant local sites. Students will also learn consolidation of materials for a variety of travel processes making travel and sketchbook more manageable. The concentration required in drawing directly from observation leads to a deeper understanding of the city’s forms and rich cultural history.
