Workshop 4: Urban Sketching Undercover

Instructor: Ted Gordonted1

Workshop description:

I feel that nothing more ruins a candid sketch of a fellow train passenger or café patron, than being spotted by your subject. In this workshop, I’ll share my methods learned while doing sketches of other people while commuting by train. The workshop will combine discussion and practice of “undercover” techniques.

Learning goals:

An understanding of the ways how you dress, what you carry, selection of subjects, and how you handle the drawings on your paper can making candid sketches easier.

Supplies list:

  • Drawing surface that’s 8”x10” or smaller
  • Sunglasses
