Angela Krieg says: "My background is in illustration and two of my hobbies are Visual Journaling and Urban Sketching, which I often combine. These two disciplines have taught me to draw my surroundings quickly and expressively. Through the workshop Visual Journaling on the Go: The Art of Drawing your Surroundings quickly, I can give participants from different backgrounds some tips and techniques to draw quickly whether they are drawing in a sketchbook or in front of clients."

  • Practice drawing new things fast.

  • Observe, draw and learn!

  • Translate location, time, and activities into visuals that can be drawn daily.

This will be an interactive presentation. Participants will practice new ways to observe the world around them and to put it down on paper for personal visual journaling.
