The Métis Mapping workshop will take participants through a personal journey of drawing our stories through the knowledge and meanings of floral motifs.

Urban Sketching
Register Urban sketches are observational drawings done on location in urban environments such as cafes, parks, on buses, in movie theatres, etc. Urban sketching combines drawing (in any medium and style) with a desire to capture and communicate authentic moments, scenes and stories from contemporary urban life.

This class will cover the fundamentals of urban sketching, from composing and sizing a drawing on the relatively small surface of a sketchbook page to selecting elements from the observed environment to communicate a mood or vision. Along the way we will also cover:

- how urban sketching differs from sketching as process (design sketching) and tourism sketches
- helpful drawing techniques for laying down figures and environments
- how to choose angles and topics of visual interest in order to get the most from your subject
- how to tweak the "truth" of a scene so as to artfully emphasize certain elements (this distinguishes urban sketching from visual journalism)

Whenever possible, we will also touch on the history of the plein air sketch, studying examples from art history including the sketches of Durer, Rembrandt and Watteau through to some examples of urban sketches today. The emphasis, however, will be on urban sketching practice in real locations around Ottawa.

Prerequisite: some familiarity with drawing and sketching. You do not have to be an expert! Enthusiasm and a desire to learn are most important.

Required FOR THE FIRST CLASS: portable sketchbook no larger than 8 x 10 inches. Smaller is preferred (ideal size is between 2x3 and 6x8). Portable drawing media (pen, pencil, brushpen or pencil crayon preferred). Avoid overly messy or smudgy media such as charcoal, chalk and paint. Watercolour may be acceptable if it is compact and tidy; for example, watercolour pencils or a small watercolour box.

How the classes work:

Each class, we will go to a new location near the school to sketch. We will sketch outdoors as much as possible, taking advantage of the visual variety in the Byward Market and surrounding areas. Homework after each class will be to create 3 to 5 additional sketches from the same place or a different place. At the beginning of each class, students will show their favourite sketches from the past week and the class will appreciatively critique them based on the practical and theoretical points so far covered.

Each class, we will go to a new location near the school to sketch. We will sketch outdoors as much as possible, taking advantage of the visual variety in the Byward Market and surrounding areas. Homework after each class will be to create 3 to 5 additional sketches from the same place or a different place. At the beginning of each class, students will show their favourite sketches from the past week and the class will appreciatively critique them based on the practical and theoretical points so far covered.
