Week9 Term3. People are just Shapes

Week 9 Term 3. Sept 17 ’16

Wow this term has gone quickly. New Sketchers and General were all tackling ‘people’ this week. We’ve made big people shapes on rolls of paper, we’ve thrown paint and crayon over them, we’ve made montages of moving people.  We’ve sketched people in the Bavarian restaurant, on the Corso, at Manly Wharf, at the Manly Art Gallery. No one was safe. We loved every minute.

By now everybody is feeling pretty confident about what they’ve achieved in the previous 9 weeks. Most (if not traveling,) will be back in Term 4 to continue this wonderful journey of self discovery.

The idea of being able to sketch, in a short time and have the joy that it brings is a fabulous feeling. No pressure to get it ‘right’ – because it doesn’t matter. It’s your impression of what you saw. Your class mates are just as excited as you are when you share your work. Your tutors are feeling elated too. For us to see how you’ve progressed is our reward. Thank you to you all for giving us great results. We look forward to Week 10 either at Little Manly Beach or at the Tea Cosy tearooms in The Rocks next week.

EHS Melbourne

Our last class for Term  3 saw us at a different location we met at Caffee Panette opposite South Melbourne market. A burst of winter with a  torrential downpour keeping us at the cafe but what a location. We were so excited seeing people with umbrellas .

So much to sketch in such a short time and so much to choose from incorporating a full terms learning- lots of fun and seeing how far everyone had come is just amazing with lots of encouragement from a small but really enthusiastic group. Look forward to seeing you all next term. Warm regards, Jeanette

EHS Auckland

This week’s New Sketcher classes were about capturing classic everyday shapes and how little we observe them.
As a writer of  30s sketching book  wrote… many of us go through life without REALLY seeing things. Ie. The bicycle!
This is what sketching does, it makes us see and connect with our subject(s) in a way we never have before
This is a great class as it gives everyone a ‘wake up call’ about observation.
Rain didn’t dampen us as we headed down  after studio time to  sketch in the  street.
The classes have formed bonds with each other and as well as fun there is  sense of support which is born out of this love for sketching – and ‘practice makes progress’!
Regards Tony

EHS Tokyo

Atsuko is doing a very thorough job talking to business and hotel people and tour organisers. She’s learning a great deal about the demographic she’s after. Tokyo has more people than 13 million people. We hope they don’t all want to come sketching at the same time!

EHS South of France

Our tutor is currently in Provence and working through the programs for EHS New Sketchers. Its looking very promising, but like Atsuko in Tokyo, you need to do your homework first.
