Come on a journey of looking, responding and recording the townscape, the landscape, your travels, people and events with the simplest of tools. Make your pen and sketchbook your constant companions. Get away from your phone and camera and learn to experience every minute using direct observation. Learn how to make a reportage drawing of events in your life. Become more fully aware of your surroundings and learn how much can be achieved in every small grab of time.
