My travel sketching short course has launched in LaSalle College of the Arts on the 9th of October, 2019. The course schedule of twice a week, once on wednesday evenings, 7-10pm and then on saturday morning to lunch time, an excursions to practice the theory learned, has so far been very well received.
This group of students seem to be engaging with their new skills and materials quite well. They've started to learn how to use water colour to paint and to sketch directly, draw thumbnails on location, and feel the challenge push them out of their comfort zones yet it's not too difficult or overwhelming. Some told me that because we use a pen directly, they cannot avoid imperfections and realise that it's actually survivable and okay. Mistakes doesn't kill them and is actually something they can cope with. I think this is the success I am looking for in travel sketchers.

In the news, I am in the process of re-opening my home studio and workshop space, it is still a secret till we finalise everything else but one hint is, it will be in town, really easy access and is going to be beautiful. So stay tuned for more exciting updates!
Let's keep in touch and keep the practice going together. Studies says that group workout is more beneficial and more effective than solo workout. Do you think this can be applied to a group drawing practice too?
