Check out this Chicago Architectural Foundation continuing education class.
Chicago arguably has the most beautiful skyline in North America, perhaps in the world. Take your basic urban drawing skills to the next level: each week we will go to an architecturally significant building downtown, learn a formulaic color or perspective technique, and draw on site. Emphasis will be placed on loose, free hand color perspective sketches in lieu of technical drawing.
