About the Masterclass

Overall Details

We sketch 'what we IMAGINE' or 'what we SEE'. 'What we see' is usually the best place to start from but sometimes we really run out of ideas on "Oh gosh! Stuck at home for so long that I don't know what am I gonna make today!". Let's try finding that everyday inspiration sitting right in front of us & try making art out of it by learning & exploring Urban Sketching.

This is a 'beginner-friendly' detailed 4 Day masterclass of Urban Sketching where you will learn to capture beautiful architecture and scenes around you in your own style.

Testimonials

“Artforms, in general, are notorious for their theory part which may sound Latin and Greek to most of us. This was the reason why I was sceptical when it came to enrolling for any art course, in the past. Though I used to sketch some bit here and there, I lacked the confidence or proper knowledge of the same. Mayuri's session gave me the confidence to take my pen to that paper. I can't explain how excited I was when I posted few of my first-ever sketches. Mayuri patiently went through each and every aspect of it for all of us in the team. And she broke down the seemingly hard-to-grasp aspects of perspective drawing step by step and in a very lucid way. Can't thank Mayuri enough. This is a milestone for me personally. Sad that the class was only 4 day long. Will miss all the action. And thanks to Zwende for bringing us all together. Great job with hassle free sessions guys 👍. Waiting for more. ”

Veena Nair

“Loved the farsightedness of the artist. She had planned everything beforehand on how to steer the session. She understood well what all obstacles can an audience face in these online classes. So she had a well-prepared ppt and used digital drawings for better understanding. Apart from that, no two thoughts about her talent. She is the Best at what she is doing. I feel there might be very few in our country of this level of talent. Thanks Zwende for bringing her to this platform. ❤️”
