A new Seattle tour invites clients to learn the skills necessary to sketch Seattle’s sights while getting the scoop on some fascinating city sights. Called Travel to Sketch, the company presents architectural sketch and walking tours through different neighborhoods, focusing on a variety of historic periods, public spaces and art. Depending on the group's interests, topics might include art deco, public art and architecture, high rises and green architecture.
The company runs three- and six-hour classes start at 9:30 a.m. The experience typically includes practice time at a café, indoor and outdoor sketching, and use of ink and other media. Wine tasting and color integration are offered at the end of the six-hour class. Supplies are provided, including a sketch book to keep, and no experience is required.
Travel to Sketch also presents three-day trips for special occasions and corporate retreats.
