Travel Sketching can change your life!
Truly anyone can do it once you have been shown how.
Learn the art of sketching impressions, with minimal fuss and maximum joy and creative expression. It's a great way to sketch your daily memoirs and the best souvenir you'll ever bring home from your holidays. Just have a read of my students comments to see how much joy it continues to give them.
This 6 week course (one morning weekly) in a small personalised group where we meet either in a coffee shop or on location depending on weather.
Students wishing to continue for another term will extend their confidence and learn new techniques. It's really fun and you will be very proud of your book filled with fun unique sketches.
Once you have registered I will send you a list of Sketch equipment that is very inexpensive and small enough to carry around with you anywhere.
Please contact me for any enquires on dates, prices etc...
What students say -
"I have been so lucky to be a part of Irena's group of enthusiastic Travel Sketchers. We have enjoyed learning and improving our skills with Irena's easy to follow instructions, and have produced work we have been so proud of. I now feel confident enough to get my compact sketch kit out when I am on holidays or just to pass time wherever I am, with another memory etched in my sketchbook. Thank you Irena for your patience and dedication to sharing your skills and knowledge with us." Liz McDermott
What I have found from learning with Irena, is that she demystifies the process and teaches us how to sketch what is really there, rather than what we think is there! I have learned so much in such a short time and it was almost effortless. I would highly recommend joining with Irena and reaping the benefits from her skilled and gentle guidance.
As a novice to travel sketching (or any sort of sketching) I have been more than happy with what I have been able to produce. With Irena‘s simple and easy to understand instructions we learnt about shapes, really seeing things as they are, perspective and leaving white spaces. Most of all... it’s been FUN! Even if you think you can’t, I would still give it a go, you may find that you’ll surprise yourself.
I always enjoy art classes with Irena. I have tried different mediums and I am amazed that I produce better artwork than I ever expected.
Irena guides, encourages, teaches and easily draws out artistic abilities from people that they never thought possible. I would encourage everyone to have a go. You will be surprised!
Whilst I have not been able to do Irena’s travel sketching class (yet) I have done other art classes with Irena, she is extremely passionate and an excellent teacher. I cannot draw to save my life but Irena makes it so easy and I have been incredible surprised at the outcomes of my masterpieces. I would highly recommend “any” class Irena is running.
Only seeing what is needed when I am sketching is a fast and easy way to record rather than drawing in every detail. Looking at colour and shading to finish my work, Irena teaches it all. I have had such fun and am proud and amazed at the things I have achieved. Thank you Irena . Kerry McDonald Baunach
Irena is passionate about awakening everyone’s creativity. Since starting with her Travel Sketching group I have found her to be a great mentor, very encouraging and pushing us to look at shadows & light and creating the memory & mood from our sketching rather than the perfect shape & form. I would encourage anyone who wants to be inspired with their art journey to check our her classes.
Your sketching kit can easily fit into a pencil case!
