Micro to Macro

"Micro to macro" sketches from the back of our school. Although we didn't venture far for our first Urban Sketchers outing of the year, we managed to find interesting details in what seemed mundane.


Noticing the Details

Details from Venice walkways.

Venice Canals

Sketching a unique house in the Venice Canals.

Lone stool

Here is a sketch by our 11th grade master of contrast and value. A lone stool in an unidentified location in Venice, Jose DB.

Sketching at the canals

Hello! This is Nancy, the other teacher adviser for the AV urban sketcher club. I am actually an English teacher who saw this group of sketching students last fall and wanted to learn how to sketch myself! It's been fun growing alongside my students and learning from the fabulous Ms. Lowe, art teacher extraordinaire. :) This is a sketch from the Venice canals. You can see two of our other sketchers working on their craft (that's Jose DB in the corner!)
Just a lazy afternoon at home.
