Sketching Classes


A sketch usually refers to a quick, informal drawing, usually done from life. A sketch captures the essentials of the subject - the overall form and perspective, a sense of volume, movement and feeling; sometimes a suggestion of light and shade. A sketch should not be labored or overworked.

A sketch may be created in any medium, though pencil is the most common. Sketches are often done in ink or charcoal too. Sketches are also part of the preparation for a more developed drawing or painting, allowing the artist to rough out their ideas and plan the finished piece before embarking on a more precise work, sometimes with several small thumbnail sketches on a single page being used to explore composition. Sketching is the fundamental building block for an artist. A sketch provides the opportunity to hone your observational skills, experiment with new techniques, create compositions and various lighting effects etc.

You can turn sketches into drawings or paintings, or they can simply be an exercise to better your abilities. Pushing yourself through sketching is a good way to improve your drawing skills.

At Key Art Classes, we challenge students drawing skills by encouraging them to sketch everyday objects they find interesting. The emphasis is always on having fun while sketching which provides a stress free environment to learn for a child. This motivates them to create their best work. However, we believe that each student should learn basics of drawing and sketching before continuing with their chosen art/craft form. Hence, we commence with basic classes and then students are free to explore their choices.

We provide indoor and outdoor study of figures and objects.

Indoor: Everyday objects such as tables, chairs, glass products, ceramic products, wood products, steel products etc. We provide live model study for figure drawing. Live model study helps students to get used to the idea of drawing from live models, getting accurate measurements, expressions etc., memory drawing and sketching, etc.

Outdoor: Landscape sketching, tree study, leaf study, vehicle study, urban scape (market, parks, etc) sketching, monument drawing, figure sketching (60 second sketch), animal sketch (60 second sketch) etc.
