Currents Gallery: Introduction to Urban Sketching

Rita Stabler, Instructor

Starting with a drawing and then an acrylic underpainting, we will layer papers to “paint” our

collage. We will experiment with Citrasolv paper, maps, paint, stamping, gelli print papers,

book pages, Joss paper, and more. We’ll discuss color, abstraction, and have fun turning a

photo into abstract art! The instructor will supply tools and materials needed as well as various

size mat boards. If you prefer to work on a canvas or wood substrate you may bring your own.

Students can bring several very simple designs and photos if they wish, however the instructor

will also have ideas to start from. Feel free to bring magazines or papers you wish to

incorporate. Beginners and intermediate students welcome
