Simple Sketch: Kitchen Inspiration!
One Zoom Session
Sat., Nov. 2, 2024, 9 am-12 pm MT

Grab your mug and a few art supplies, and let’s have tea together! In this fun and relaxed Zoom workshop, artist Judith Cassel-Mamet shares her Simple Sketch© approach that’s ideal for those interested in sketching from observation. No matter your experience, this class plays with contour lines, shading and color to enhance the experience of capturing various items. “This approach does not depend on perfection. Instead, we include joy as part of the sketching process,” Cassel-Mamet says. “I start by inviting you to open a kitchen drawer to find a tool. Then we practice rendering the object with easy and accessible lines.” Next, you add shading to give your sketch a 3D feel. After that, watercolors are applied with basic painting techniques. Finally, the class is invited to pull out a mug, fill it with tea or coffee and capture the serene and calming moment of having tea with a friend. “We delight in the mixing of pen and watercolor for quick sketches,” she says. “And the material list is simple, so you don’t have to spend a fortune on items that are only used once.” The course uses the basics: watercolor, paper, pens and pencils. Plus, there’s lots of time for Q&A and sharing your work in a non-competitive space.
