Drawing on Site: Urban Sketching One-Week Intensive

Explore the world of urban, or on-site, sketching as you draw observationally, engaging with your surroundings for inspiration. Field trips to the Art Institute of Chicago museum and other local attractions (e.g., Chicago's Lakefront, Garfield Park Conservatory, Millennium Park) will inspire you as you develop quick, spontaneous sketches and longer-term drawings that unfold over time. You will be able to choose your preferred medium, with encouragement to try some color during the class. Start by drawing things around you that can be captured easily, then gradually lean into the challenge of drawing more evanescent subjects that move or change, like natural elements in your home, yard, neighborhood, or local park. 

Optional campus housing is available for an additional $500 a week for a single room or $375 for a double room. Housing registration takes place after you enroll for the course. If you would like to register for housing, please complete your course enrollment online now and then email us at cs@saic.edu or call 312.629.6170.
