Scenes from the Urban Sketching Workshop
Art sketching is oftentimes associated with an easel in the park or at a big studio but it is actually something we can do anywhere we are.
Robert Alejandro teaches us that we can find inspiration everywhere, even in the city.
Robert's workshop helped everyone loosen up and enjoy illustration instead of feeling pressured to churn out something Michaelangelo would do.
"Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once we grow up." - Pablo Picasso
It's true that there is an artist inside each of us. It is innate to create. Whether it is to cook good food, write a book, grow vegetables or nurture a child inside the womb - each person is meant to create.
Watch Robert in action...
It was definitely a fun weekend at the Katipunan Art Festival 2017 as we gave 15% off Papemelroti kraft blanks and kits that weekend!
2017 is truly a special year! Robert has done more workshops this year than any other year! Watch out for the nearing end of the workshop series this 50th year of Papemelroti!
Good job Robert!
The event was held last October 21, 2017 at the UP Town Center grounds, Katipunan Avenue, Quezon City.
