Urban Sketching Class
Thursday, June 13, 10am - noon
Eva Caten Remington Education Center
323 Washington St., Ogdensburg
Whether you’re traveling in a new city, or want to see your hometown with fresh eyes, urban sketching is a great way to get out and explore. Artist Kathy Kelly will lead a walking sketching tour around the neighborhood of the Remington Museum and along Ogdensburg’s waterfront. Along the way, she will share sketching tips, and offer advice about tools, materials, and techniques.
Kelly says, “For me, the whole point of drawing is seeing. We miss so much when we go by things, but drawing makes you slow down to really see. And you’ll never forget what you draw.”
During the class, sketching will be done in pen, but participants are invited to the classroom of the Eva Caten Remington Education Center after the sketching tour is over to add color to their sketches. Participants are also welcome to bring a bagged lunch to enjoy while they add color.
Participants should meet at the Eva Caten Remington Education Center, 323 Washington Street, Ogdensburg, and should bring a small sketchbook that is easy to carry around. Pens will be provided, though artists are welcome to bring their own pens if they prefer. The cost of the class is $15 for members of the Remington Museum and $25 for non-members. The class is limited to 12 participants.
