USk Chicago Sketch Seminar 2014

What a wonderful and exhausting weekend! Urban Sketchers Chicago held it's first sketching seminar June 7-8. Our home base was at the historic Palette and Chisel Academy of Fine Arts.

The first morning before heading out to our sketching destinations

Wes Douglas and I taught the first workshop Saturday morning.  "A Crash Course in Urban Sketching" was class to get the beginners started on the Urban Sketching adventure both in theory and practice.  We hope the participants had as great a time as we did!

  1. Looks like it was a wonderful experience. Good group of people. I'm curious about the t shirts. Did you have them made?

  2. It was really a fabulous experience all around. We ordered the t shirts from one of our sponsors
