Come learn to sketch, this is a fun way of exploring Bengaluru city. We will be walking around the Gandhi Bazaar Area which is in the heart of Old. This workshop is the Kickstarter to all those who think they can't draw or even the ones who have been drawing for a while and want to explore and learn further. Here we learn how to compose, draw natural surroundings, buildings and other landmarks of Bengaluru city with ease. You will learn how to create free-flowing sketches, use pen and watercolor and keep a journal.
We will start this Independence Day Sketchwalk by a short introduction to sketching, the value of sketching and how it can help in our fast-paced day to day lives and how it can be used for documenting our travels, thoughts and more.
We will meet in front of Roti Ghar Gandhi Bazaar and sketch the market in front which is a beautiful part of old Bangalore, that still retains some of the Old Bangalore charms. The market is always bustling with people and vendors
The sketch walk will start with the market place, first with a pencil than with a pen and then you will learn to use watercolors. We will head out into the surroundings and try and capture the many sights while ending the sketch walk with the famous Davanagere Benne Dosa and Filter Coffee and then you can head out to the Lal Bagh Botanical gardens where the flower show will be on display.
