A Lunenburg Sketch-About

This course is for any level of sketcher, offering a unique opportunity to be immersed in historic Lunenburg, which offers brightly coloured heritage buildings, a working harbor and vibrant boat-building culture for sketching. Our format will be both our personal sketchbooks, and some larger works on paper.

Over the course of five days we will break down sketching into various parts, in three-hour morning workshops, that participants can then integrate into their own sketching practice in the afternoon. There will be ample time for feedback from the instructor and fellow participants.
