Practice Urban Sketching with multi-media artists, Karen MacDonald. 

Rather than drawing from reference material, such as photos, inside a studio or house, for example, urban sketching is the activity of sketching from life on location. Perhaps the subtle element that differentiates urban sketching from the act of sketching on location, that artists have partaken in for decades (or centuries), is telling a story with the sketch.

The group will meet at the Arts Station, and then venture out into downtown Fernie to find suitable sketching locations. 

The cost is $40 and includes basic materials. If you have your own materials or tools, you are encouraged to bring them.

Pre-registration required.
