The Sketching Tour

What you will learn

You will begin the tour with guided exercises which help you capture everything from hydrangeas to weathered shingles. Using the charming streets of Nantucket and sketching examples, we teach the relevant elements of the renowned book Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain. A range of teaching tips will give you a body of knowledge to use in your paintings, drawings, sketches and most importantly, "seeing".

"Thank you so much. I feel I've come so far in just a few lessons under your guidance. I don't exaggerate when I say that I wouldn't , and couldn't, have done it without your encouragement and sensitive instruction. I am so excited about being able to continue.  I feel I'm learning so much every time I step up to the canvas." David

"Anne, your workshops have been the best gift I could have given myself. Thank you for your support and sharing your incredible talent. I loved every moment." Susan
