Möchten Sie Figuren voller Leben und Vitalität in Ihren Skizzen festhalten? Haben Sie sich gefragt, wie Sie Menschen in Ihre Skizzen einbinden können? Dann ist dies der richtige Workshop für Sie! 

In the first part of this workshop, we’ll focus on learning to capture people quickly in our sketches. We’ll focus on gestural drawing with a brush pen in this exercise.

In the second part of our workshop, we will create small vignettes using gestural sketches combined with accessories and setting to start telling stories with our figures. 

In the third part of the workshop, we will create a larger composition where we use a contrast of styles: gestural drawing for the figures combined with a different style or tool for the setting. By combining styles and/or tools, we’ll explore how even very loose figures can be incorporated into sketches and how contrasting styles can be used for a richer capture. 

Throughout the workshop, the instructor will do short demos or work alongside participants. We will share and discuss each exercise and learn from everyone’s work.


• Capturing action-packed figures

• Learning to build gestural figures into larger sketches

• Exploring using different styles, medium and techniques for a richer capture. 


– Brushpen (Like the Pentel Pocket Brush Pen or any other true brush-tip pen)

– A few other mark-making tools with a different characters: pens, colored pencils, markers etc.

– A simple coloring medium (eg: watercolors, pencils, markers)

– Sketchbook: for the first exercise with gesture drawing, we use a LOT of pages: bring cheaper paper for this if you prefer. (or be prepared to use many pages in your sketchbook) For the next two exercises your regular sketchbooks will work.

– A folding stool to sit on if you prefer

Hinweis: Keep your kit light as I prefer that you walk around, change positions often, and get up close to the action. We will be working in a busy urban settings where there will be crowds( because we want to draw people!) and noise. You will have to carry your bag/kit with you.
