Learn Enough to Play for a Lifetime in Kath Macaulay’s Pocket Sketching and Journaling Workshop!
Starved for a bit of joy, creativity, color and meditation?
Kath’s workshops are for anyone who wants to sketch, paint or journal for the first time, and for people who want a new, totally transportable, no-clean-up field technique. Kath named the technique she discovered by accident as “pocket sketching” because all the equipment is minimal, inexpensive, and fits in a small fanny pack, ready to use in a moment.
Pocket Sketching is so easy to learn and to use anywhere, there’s no fear. People with unfortunate art experience, no experience at all or professional artists can all pick this technique up quickly enough to use it immediately after the workshop. Perhaps the biggest benefit is seeing the world in a whole new light like a little kid. It’s almost like getting cataracts removed: people comment after the first day, “I see colors I’ve never noticed before all around me. My whole outlook has changed in one day of class!”
In two days students learn landscape, still life and people, then go out on the third day basically to prove to themselves they can do it anywhere in 25 minutes or less. The fourth morning is devoted to ‘journaling’ with pocket sketching equipment and skills already learned in the workshop. There are no rules, and almost every ‘mistake’ is advanced watercolor.
Kath is a national workshop instructor and competing artist. Her work has been displayed in international exhibitions and is in many public collections. She has taught extensively throughout the southwest. In October 2012, she was one of 32 artists invited to participate in the prestigious Sedona Plein Air Festival, which is a week-long event staged throughout the Sedona area on location outdoors. After the festival, she taught her three-day sketching workshop in Sedona. View works by Kath at her web-site.
