Graphical diary workshop - Sky Sketcher

Graphic diary workshop – Sky Sketcher

By Estela Safara Cameirão, architect and Urban Sketcher

Drawing workshop with astronomy and the night sky in Alentejo as thematic for who thinks that drawing is as difficult as traveling to the Moon.

Consists of drawing on a sketch book (learning the concept of graphic diary) and finding in it a whole field to experiment several drawing techniques and materials, with observation exercises having in mind the line, the dark-light, the scale of proportions, repetition, patterns and textures. Subjects related to the OLA and the landscape will be approached. The participants may draw not only the building, equipment and the surrounding landscape but also the craters on the Moon, nebulas, and stellar clusters with the help of OLA’s telescopes.
