Learn to visually translate the splendor of Rome and travel there from the comfort of home, as we actively master a sense of place while producing a final product in this interactive drawing and watercolor 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 the Eternal City of Rome with a focus on the Trevi Fountain. Participants will experience this iconic wishing well through the lens of a sculpture. We will learn how to render the implied movement of sculpted figures at the Trevi Fountain using gesture, contrapposto, and value 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.

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.

I didn't understand what "Sketchbook Workshop" meant - i didn't know I was going to be joining a drawing class. But it turned out to be so fascinating and informative, I'm really glad I decided to stay. I learned not only about different aspects of the figures on the fountain of Trevi, but how an artist would block them out and shade them to make them come alive. It was also my first class in water colors, which have always been a mystery to me. So that was great fun and I would do that again.
