Learn to visually translate Bohemian Paris and travel there from the comfort of home, as we actively master a sense of place while producing a final product in this interactive sketchbook seminar.

"Photography is an immediate reaction, drawing is a meditation." Henri Cartier-Bresson

Missing traveling? In this workshop series, we will virtually visit a different location each week, learning to visually translate your experiences and relive the age of traveling from home. We will learn how to quickly sketch and capture an environment with the use of references. These skills can be applied to future travel plans, or to find new ways to appreciate the space and environment around us. Each class will have its own emphasis and will build upon the previous session, although participants don’t need to have attended prior classes in order to enjoy.

This interactive session will transport participants to Bohemian Paris through a perspective lens. We will visit Montmartre, the home of Parisian Modernism. We will observe cafe life and amazing views using a one-point perspective. We will learn how to render an iconic Parisian street with a foundation in perspective through pen and watercolor. The goal is to share a love of travel and learning while developing a new skill, providing a catalyst (observational drawing) for generative experiences vs. a passive one.

Led by an expert in Studio Arts, Ingrid Shults, this interactive seminar will provide a toolset of observational drawing skills geared towards rendering architecture, landscapes, people, and environments. Designed to inform curiosity as well as future travels, participants will come away with an increased desire to visually record their immediate surroundings and future travel destinations.

This conversation is part of a multi-part sketchbook series with Ingrid Shults. Each session is designed as a stand-alone seminar as well as part of a multi-week series.

These are materials that are needed for the class:

  • Sketchbook or watercolor paper 90lbs. + Watercolor paper
  • Pencils (2H)
  • Erasers
  • Pens (water-soluble and permanent)
  • Watercolor brushes (flat, thin, and big)
  • Watercolors
  • Water
  • Cup
  • Straight-edge
  • Pastels (optional)

Ingrid Shults is an artist and educator residing in Northern California. She has an MFA in Studio Arts from Purdue University, and has exhibited her work nationally and internationally. Ingrid works primarily as a painter with a focus on the figure, but has extended her practice of sketching to include her travels, or more relevant to the COVID-era, her untravels. Ingrid has a firm belief in the transformative power of observational drawing and promotes this practice in her workshops and the most recent Untravel Sketchbook Series.

This conversation is suitable for all ages

90 minutes, including a 30 minute Q&A.

Urban Sketching from the Living Room

I am a novice sketcher and found this seminar to be friendly for a beginner with a little bit of push to challenge, but not overwhelm me. I was fine with the amount of material that was covered. I understood that the sixty minute time constraint would only allow Ingrid to cover so much material. I felt she had a good balance between instruction and actual sketching time.

Quick Sketch

Ingrid was very clear in her demos and comments and I was quite happy with my final quick sketch/wash. I do wish, however, that she could show the photo she is working from alongside the notebook she is sketching on, so when she points out the angles or the shadows and shapes I can actually look at the photo to see what she is looking at. That would be truly helpful.

The workshop was very well done. However, it should be described as very much a beginner's level. I had anticipated doing 5 or 6 sketches of different spots around Paris, so was rather disappointed that we only did one.
