 In this one-day workshop we will discuss composition, perspective, and simplifying the subject matter.

 We will begin in the classroom where instructor Lisa Snow Lady will share tips on sketching on-site and lead you through some fun warm-up exercises.  Then, weather permitting, we will “travel” to local areas in beautiful downtown Edmonds to sketch outdoors!
