Bring back meaningful memories, not just photos

Capturing the details of a historic site requires that you REALLY look at something carefully. Even if you draw quickly, it requires attention to each shape and curve. This makes the experience of being at a place so much more powerful -- creating a long-lasting memory for years to come. Capture drawings on site will forever embed that experience in your mind.

What people said about this lesson...

"This lesson was such an eye-opener for me, Eni!! I've never before had any instruction in sketching. Years ago I tried and tried - to no avail - to "draw what I saw". Giving no thought to seeking professional instruction, I just assumed I was "not an artist" and let it go ... feeling defeated. Zentangle has allowed me to shed that negative label. Over the last 7 years I have experienced so much joy in opening up to the creativity that I'd buried! Then I watched THIS lesson. OMG! Your words and your drawing tools melted away veil after veil of mystery, at first igniting in me the excitement of possibility and then convincing me that I can do this!!!!! What a gift. What a VALUABLE gift you've given me. I can't wait to see you again at TangleU next year and give you a big hug of gratitude! :)"

"Dear Eni, thanks a lot for making it sooo easy. I love urban sketching, but never tried it before because I thought it was very difficult. But as you say, it doesn’t have to be exactly the same, only a little similar. Now I’ll try it. Thanks again for encouraging us to try new things!"

"Just watched my first lesson since joining the Art Club. I had a wonderful time and it has given me some great ideas for when I’m out sketching in the field. I am sure I will be using these techniques over and over. Thanks Eni. "
