Travel Sketching Masterclass by Hemali Mehta on November 21st, 22nd, 28th & 29th

About the Artist:

Hemali (@productivitytheory) is a Bangalore based artist who works mainly in Urban Sketching. She has been teaching Urban Sketching for the past 2 years. While exploring the medium, she even chose sketching over photographs during her travels. She believes, sketchbook slows her down, it lets her experience the place in a whole new way, and that's how she started documenting her travels through a Travel Sketching Journal.
