Sketch Classes

Sketching – For Design & Pleasure
Instructor: Wendy White

It is widely acknowledged among designers that freehand drawing is the best method for developing creative design.  It is also agreed that freehand drawing is directly linked to the creative design process, the right brain being for sketching and designing, the left-brain for mathematics and computers.
Often we jump to the computer prematurely, skipping this freethinking ‘doodle’ and sketch process.  Join us for some creative fun as we re-awakening and develop that ‘right brain’ skill of creative sketching.

Part 1 – Sketch Basics, Furniture & Interior Elements

Friday, March 3rd, 10th & 17th, 10am – 12pm (6 hours total)
Cost: $195 + GST

During the first of three sessions, the basics of 3-dimensional sketching will be explored. Drawing interior design items such as furniture and accent accessories through observation and study of proportion and scale will be taught.
