One thought on “Meet our instructors: Allana Pierce

  1. How much stuff do I need for on-location sketching? What are the best sketchbooks to have? What size book is right for me? Should I bring my watercolors or just sketch with pen and ink? What kind of ink? What kind of pen? Where do I sit? Do I need to provide my own chair? What about hats, do I need a hat to protect me from the sun? What are the best sun screens for urban sketchers? I would be a terrible speed dater, but Allana will set you straight on the tools most often used in Urban Sketching. Plus you get to test-drive them to make your own decisions.
