About the Event

About the Artform

Urban Sketching is a new age artform of capturing architecture, cityscapes, live scenes of streets, daily life or travels in a quick way with easy to access art tools. A global community of artists called Urban Sketchers practice drawing and sketching of locations of several cities, towns, and villages that they travel to.

About the Masterclass

We sketch 'what we IMAGINE' or 'what we SEE'. 'What we see' is usually the best place to start from but sometimes we really run out of ideas on "Oh gosh! Stuck at home for so long that I don't know what am I gonna make today!". Let's try finding that everyday inspiration sitting right in front of us & try making art out of it by learning & exploring Urban Sketching.

This is a 'beginner-friendly' detailed 4 Day masterclass of Urban Sketching where you will learn to capture beautiful architecture and scenes around you in your own style.
