Urban sketching is the practice of drawing the world around you, even if it’s the world you’re used to seeing all the time. You can learn to see, appreciate and render the world you live in with the 2022 Urban Sketching Course Bundle. This 20-hour training bundle is on sale for only $39.99 (regularly $319).

Urban sketching: Learn to draw your surroundings

The buildings on your street might look simple, but learning to sketch them requires mastering a lot of complicated techniques. Sure, you could just take a picture, but this bundle has 10 workshops to help you learn and grow confident as a sketch artist, even if your drawing experience is limited.

Start with a blank page and jump into any course that sketches something that interests you. For example, you can discover the intricacies of a classic American 1940 Harvester Trust. Or learn to draw alongside a master instructor as they render all the details of a quaint little village.

For a change of scenery, you can learn to sketch a city. Or go classic and watch a master sketch a Tudor-style building. You can even apply these lessons to digital art if you prefer to work with a medium that has an undo button.

Virtually every artist will tell you one of the only ways to get better at drawing is simply to draw more. This bundle gives you tons of opportunities to hone your craft. But it also guides you, so your practice works toward something greater. When you get frustrated, watch one of the sketching videos and learn from an experienced pro who went through the same complex steps you’re doing now.

Ian Fennelly leads each course. And who better to lead workshops on urban sketching than the man who wrote the book on it? Fennelly is the author of Layers of Looking, and his years of experience as an urban artist make him the perfect person to guide a budding artist’s craft.
