Urban Sketching – 11/09/22

Shop Front Painting by Sketchmcr

In this Urban Sketching workshop you will learn how to paint the perspective of a shop on King Street called Pretty Green. Artist Ben Rock will show you each step on how to bring the image to life, with using the art materials provided. Ben is a big fan of painting shop fronts and hope you will be too.

This is a two part class, you will all meet at Affinity Living Riverview Building, and from here walk to King Street (8 minutes away). You will have time to take photos and in the sketchbook provided to you, you will take studies and sketch live on the streets. Then, with all your studies, you will return to Affinity Living to create your final piece using acrylic paints, all under the guidance of out artist tutor and assistant.

Using the skills taught in this class, you can go on to draw all sorts of buildings and cityscapes of Manchester, as you will learn the basic steps to study and draw buildings.

There is a cafe onsite at Affinity Living also, so you will have time to grab some refreshments after your walk in the city.
