About the Event:
The workshop will examine the integral role that drawings play, on a daily basis, within a professional setting by exploring real-world examples around the Jupiter Inlet. Additionally, it will examine how urban sketching is an essential method/tool for continual professional practice and growth. The workshop tour will focus specifically on the evolution of the Jupiter Inlet from the beginning of development and entitlement processes to what it's become over its 10 year journey. The tour will begin with walking to the Square Grouper and Guanabanas, and move through the Inlet to areas along Love Street, as well as The Pelican Club and Utiki. While on the tour, there will be stopping points to discuss key focal areas of the developments and give time for participants to sketch and practice the techniques discussed at the beginning of the tour.Participants will meet at Love Street in Jupiter for brief introductions and sketching demonstration before touring the Inlet. At the end of the tour there will be appetizers and drinks at one of the restaurants and an opportunity for participants to show off their sketches from the walk.
