What we’ll do

Do you get inspired as you walk through a museum? Me too! Sketch the Art Institute with a local watercolor artist. Museum entry and sketch kit are included. No experience is necessary!

Sketching on location takes you out of your everyday distractions letting you nurture your creative side. If you enjoy taking photographs or journaling, sketching will enhance both. I’ll show you valuable sketching techniques to let you find and express your own style. We’ll use minimal supplies that are easy to carry to create sketches. This should fit easily into your day bag ready whenever inspiration strikes.

I will guide us to an inspiring spot in this astounding 1 million square foot space. I’ll show you your sketch kit, how to get started, and finding your subject. We’ll sketch together and I’ll guide you as you need. We’ll spend up to 20 minutes sketching a subject and then move to our next location.

Your customized sketching kit includes a water soluble graphite, water soluble pencil, water-brush, eraser, and drawing pad. I’ll bring other supplies for you to try like watercolor sticks, watercolor markers and watercolor pencils. Showing you how to further customize your sketch kit.
