About This Class

Join illustrator, educator and adventurer Sarah Shaw for a 25-minute class that explores travel illustration! Take your drawing materials outside or travel vicariously through your photographs as you create a unique scene from your favorite place, whether it's from home or abroad. 

This class will encourage you to think creatively-- first envisioning and brainstorming details about your favorite place, researching imagery, and using those ideas to construct a dynamic composition. Anyone can excel in this class, even if you're convinced that you can't draw. Believe me, you can.

We'll explore techniques for sketching compositions, drawing with pen, and applying bold colors with either watercolors or markers to make your scene come to life. Your final projects can be framed, gifted, or scanned into a header for your travel blog or website. There are so many possibilities! Take this class and illustrate your story.
