FLAX Art + Design Store & Zip LehnusThrough May 26th
Join local artist and art entrepreneur Zip Lehnus at FLAX art + design Store for the expanded, two-part version of the fun and active outdoor workshop, “Zen & The Art of Urban Sketching, (Parts 1 & 2)” at Fort Mason Center for Arts & Culture. Lehnus is a science writer and avid sketcher whose subjects reflect his science and nature interests.
Lehnus has a gallery on Instagram and he also founded and operates a boutique artist’s charcoal company, Big Stick Charcoal. The workshops begin at FLAX, where participants pick up their urban sketching kit(s) (included in the admission fee[s]), go over basic urban sketching techniques, and set off to discover beautiful outdoor settings perfect for urban sketching.
The $55 workshops, “You Can Do This!” on Sundays, March 3, April 7, and May 5, 2019 include everything needed to jump-start a passion for urban sketching (more than $40.00 worth of items). Materials included are: the Sakura Coi Watercolor Pocket Set (a $22.52 value), the Strathmore Vision Mixed Media Pad ($6.47 value), the Tombow Fudenosuke Brush Pen Set ($6.98), a Uni-Ball Gel Impact Pen in Coconut White (~$2.00), a Palomino Blackwing Pencil (~$2.00), a General Pencil Extra-Soft White Vinyl Eraser ($1.09), and a KUM Magnesium Wedge Sharpener (~$1.45).
The $40 follow-up workshops, “Perspective, Light & Shadow,” on Sundays, March 24, April 21, and May 26, 2019, provide more tips about visual cues, light sources, and how to use shadows, light, and other powerful elements to reveal more drawing details. The Part 2 workshop includes more art supplies, too.
