As an offshoot of the global Urban Sketchers organization the Urban Sketchers Chicago held the second Chicago Sketch Seminar on 11 and 12 July, 2015 at the Palette and Chisel Academy of Fine Arts and the surrounding Gold Coast neighborhood. This two day seminar attracted participants from all around the Midwest as well as an international crowd with visitors from as far away as India. With 10 workshops taught by local Chicago sketchers, participants had a wide range of topics to choose from which allowed them to tailor their weekends to the specific skill sets they wanted to develop. From watercolor techniques, figure drawing, perspective drawing, marker techniques, to colored pencils and even incorporating text into a sketch, the weekend was filled with incredible learning opportunities.more
