About This Workshop

Explore urban sketching with the internationally renowned Urban Sketching Instructor, Ian Fennelly in historic Santa Fe New Mexico.

Santa Fe’s downtown and historic plaza offers an enormous amount of opportunities for Ian’s sketching lessons. Discover picturesque sketching spots just steps away from MISA’s South West campus at the Historic Hilton, located just one block from the downtown plaza.

The theme of the workshop is finding your own inspiration through creativity – drawing and capturing the story of a place while making friends, learning skills and discovering the history of a special place. Each day students will focus on a new, exciting and challenging topic with Ian.

Days 1 and 2 will focus on quick black and white sketches; dealing with composition, tone and perspective. These activities will last around 90 mins, each broken down into 3 steps. Students will get through 2 or 3 sketches per day. The rest of the week will be be full day workshops with color.

Inspiration in Santa Fe involves:

* Discovering new places – adobe style architecture, shops, restaurants & food
* Finding new colors – rich deep sandstone, natural tones and neutral tones
* Experiencing history – early settlements, Santa Fe trail, oldest church in the USA
* Learning new skills – positivity, improving technique, recognition
* Meeting people – socializing, making new connections, companionship in a community of creative spirits

This five-day Southwestern sketching retreat includes breakfast and lunch. Dinner is on your own at any of the many authentic New Mexican cuisine restaurants.

Students are encouraged to arrive early or stay a few days after the workshop to enjoy Santa Fe and the surrounding area.
