Whales downtown - honestly
I have been leading a sketching group one evening a week this fall. I say lead rather than teach, as I coach more than lecture. We did have a few indoor classes to cover some basics including an evening explaining perspective. Many people have trouble with perspective which isn't surprising really when you look at the history of art and how many centuries it took to figure it out. We anayzed and copied photographs to understand the main principles.
We've moved on to drawing on location, which because it is now cold and dark in the evening has to be indoors. This was at the World Exchange Plaza in Ottawa, where yes, beluga whales and one narwal swim through the air.
