Course description

Learn Urban Sketching in Sydney.

Urban Sketching is a course for people who want to draw the world around them.

Go on a journey with our professional artist in Sydney and learn how to draw realistic street scenes and breathtaking buildings. Visit cafes, restaurants or even the markets and discover how to draw the interiors of buildings. With only a sketchbook, pencil, sharpener and eraser you are set to go.

Walk to the location that is chosen by the students and learn how to observe, compose, simplify a complex scene and create a strong focus. After the foundation is set, you will finish your artwork in class.

Optional: Depending on previous learning, you might wish to use other media and add some colour to the drawing. Please discuss your choice with the tutor first for the best result.

Course testimonials:

  • Sze Sui Ryllis said: I enjoyed the two lessons very much. Elinor Pickard, the teacher is kind and patient. She is an experienced teacher and I have learnt a lot from her. I am also motivated and inspired by my classmates. They are all nice and friendly and I am too happy to recognise them. In fact, draw and paint on site is definitely a gorgeous experience, so relaxing and enjoyable with a group of friends or classmates. Wish such kind of activities could extend the duration.

  • Jan said: I really enjoyed this course because it built on a little knowledge of the subject that I already have. The places chosen for sketching and the advice given about choosing a subject were invaluable. I was able to see progress from my first sketch in the first session to my last one at the end of the course. I would certainly attend another course run by Ellie.

  • Gabrielle said: Ellie is a fantastic teacher. She patiently guided us through a range of useful exercises as well as giving us plenty of time to develop our our own sketches in and around Sydney's cbd streets and parks. All levels of drawing skill will find this course a great introduction to urban sketching and a fantastic precursor to joining an urban sketching meetup.
