Madeline Island Workshop

In July 2024, I'm looking forward to participating in a really exciting group workshop (like a mini symposium!) at the Madeline Island School of Arts in Wisconsin USA.

Sketching Haven: A Summer Retreat with Four Internationally Renowned Artists.

I'll be joined by three terrific sketchers from the Urban Sketching community - Eduardo Bajzek from Brazil; Oliver Moeller from Austria and Nina Johansson from Sweden. We'll be exploring the island and the Bay Area, working in our sketchbooks in pen, pencil and watercolour.

This is a 5-day workshop, with gorgeous facilities and a varied itinerary so you can explore many ways of looking and recording what you see. Eduardo Bajzek's workshop focuses on capturing trees and landscapes using graphite. My workshop specialises in colour and botanical sketching. Oliver Hoeller guides participants in telling the story of Madeline Island through sketching. Nina Johansson immerses you in everyday life in the coastal harbour village. On the final day we'll have some great whole team activities.

With diverse techniques and personalised guidance, these workshops offer a comprehensive learning experience for participants to refine their skills and explore various aspects of sketching and painting.

Dates 8th July - 12th July 2024. Here is the link for more information, artist galleries and booking links :-)
