It's back! Come enjoy the outdoors while putting pen to paper. With a hand-picked set of tools and some simple, practical techniques offered by instructor Zip Lehnus, learn how to sketch on location, in a setting rich with subjects, like Alcatraz and the Golden Gate Bridge. Sketching is fun—if you do it right. And it’s good for you.
