The official travel company for the Emmy-nominated show “Destination Craft!”
Our “resident artist” and travel manager, Deb Haugen, teaches beginners how to start urban sketching, and use easy watercolor washes. Her approach is simple, by using 4 different lines you can draw anything, you just need to “see” things differently. In Deb’s “urban sketch meet up” you will learn how to begin drawing/watercolors, and your creativity will blossom. You’ll change the negative “I can’t draw” dialogues in your mind to…. “I can do this” and enjoy a new outlet for your personal creativity.
