Sketching with SUTD students

57 Eng Hoon, Singapore Lorong Mambong @ Holland Village, Singapore

Recently myself, TIA and 2 other USk-Singapore sketchers (Jenny & Marvin) were invited to teach a 10 week Urbansketching workshop with Singapore University of Design and Technology (SUTD). This university has a tie-up with MIT for its architecture and engineering programmes. First five sessions were spent in school learning the basics like lines and textures. The last four were practical on-location sketching sessions. The students were very enthusiastic and produced remarkable work within a short span of time. Above are 2 of my on-location demo pieces.

Urbansketching Workshop with Geography Teachers' Association

Little Guilin, Singapore Little Guilin, Singapore

Recently I had the privilege of conducting a Urbansketching workshop for 20 secondary school geography teachers. We had a wonderful time drawing together in the morning and learning basic language of lines and textures. The highlight was going to Little Guilin at Bukit Batok to sketch on-location.
