Discover the magic of Bamberg with pen and watercolour! Professional urban sketcher Ian Fennelly will show you techniques and methods that help you to create your own lively and atmospheric sketches. Learn to find your individual style and fill your sketchbook step by step. Inspired by the charm of the picturesque scenery of Bamberg you will be able to capture your favourite travel memories with brush and pen.

Welcome to Bamberg! A city that definitely sparks creativity! A perfect place to soak up on history, on calmness, on creativity and, of course, on beauty (the beauty of everyday life). To sum it up: The perfect place for Urban Sketching with Ian! With his empathetic, storytelling, calm yet precise teaching… he and his sketching and Bamberg's scenery just work out brilliantly together. 

Ian will teach you about the composition and the structure of the sketch, how to recognise clear perspective, and how to train your eye to see what is important for your work and reduce it to the essential elements. All of this and so much more will be taught and developed in many drawing and sketching sessions together. The course aims to deepen your skills in sketching, drawing and watercolouring, to exchange views, to capture atmospheric scenery of Vienna, and to have fun.

Learning goals:

  • train the eye to see shapes, value, and color in outdoor scenes
  • become comfortable sketching in public
  • learn to draw standing up
  • become an urban sketcher and start reaping the benefits of seeing the world in a new way

All teaching sessions and demonstrations will take place in Bamberg. Ian will choose the most suitable and inspiring subjects to draw. Each session will cater for varying standards of ability and confidence, and you will be stimulated throughout the workshops by stories and little demo sketches to make the experience more rewarding and stimulating.

Target group: (all levels) This course is meant to be for beginners as well as for advanced learners.

Number of participants: 6-12

Where do we sketch/draw? We will draw and sketch mainly outside en plein air, so you should not mind walking longer distances on foot.
