Class Description: 
Join award-winning travel artist, urban designer and educator James Richards in one of his favorite places, Santa Fe, New Mexico. James will share his key lessons and techniques from decades of travel and urban sketching across the globe. You’ll learn the ideas and methods behind Jim’s less rigid, more accessible approach to on-location sketching that goes beyond technical accuracy to capturing the essential character, life and energy of a special place. 
This is a rare opportunity to take your urban sketching to the next level. You’ll explore the elements and attributes that speak to the authentic character and culture of Santa Fe and its environs, and learn the best sketching techniques to capture them with life and freshness.  Jim's workshop will include daily outings around the historic plaza and surrounding historic Santa Fe area. There will also be a day trip to sketch iconic spots in Taos, New Mexico.

Here’s what you’ll learn:
  • Jim’s techniques and tips for capturing buildings, trees, landforms, and entourage.

  • A 5-step approach to creating lively perspectives of street scenes and architecture.

  • Six techniques for enhancing the illusion of realism and depth.

  • Jim’s secrets for heightening the drama, energy and exuberance of your sketches.

  • Essential attitudes and approaches to your work that develop confidence and speed.
