Wat je gaat doen

Want to see your living room or backyard through the eyes of an artist? This experience will allow you to explore your home through the fun and relaxing medium of sketching. Whether you can barely draw stick figures or you have a degree in fine arts, this experience is for you! We will start the experience by learning about the rich history of sketching and related media, like watercolor. We will then review the background and basics of ink sketching and watercolor painting and how they combine to form a powerful tool for connecting with and documenting the environment around you. With guidance from your instructor, you will do your sketches either indoors or in your backyard. The minimum required supplies are a blank piece of paper and and a pen (ballpoint or ink are fine). Additional drawing and painting supplies, such as a basic watercolor set, are also welcome. Grab a glass of wine or your favorite snacks and let's sketch together!

After pursuing studio art in high school, my focus shifted to biomedical sciences, but I always employed an artistic lens. I've designed numerous health promotion materials, including a four-part Afro-futurism comic book series titled Genome Adventures. I also co-produced a 30-minute coming-of-age documentary film with funding from a Fulbright-National Geographic Digital Storytelling Fellowship. Over the past few years, my interest has shifted to urban sketching, capturing the world around me through ink sketching and watercolor painting. I am a member of Watercolor Art Society Houston and am internationally known for my urban watercolor sketches.

This was a really relaxing/therapeutic way to spend an afternoon! I had never done watercolor before, and Ed walked me through some helpful exercises to warm up and get into the creative mindset. I found myself getting really absorbed in the artwork, and really loved the end product! This is a fun experience that I'd recommend for groups, families, and for solo artists, both beginners and more advanced. Hope to do this in person!

This was a great experience all around! It was great meeting Ed and spending some time learning about painting along with the culture of Houston! I highly recommend this!

I bought this for my wife for her birthday and she loved every minute of it. Our daughter (6) also took part and loved it too! My wife has done sketching and painting every day since and there are scribbles and doodles everywhere in the house again. 100% loved it.

I don’t have any experience with watercolors (aside from when I was a kid and doing crayon resist stuff), but Ed made it easy to learn and I am looking forward to experimenting with more!

My first airbnb experience and was much more personable and homey feeling than I expected. I definitely would recommend.
