Sketch Camp Chicago spends a full day taking a deep dive into the world of sketching! Bring your favorite pencils, erasers, and a fresh Moleskine to fill up with all you can sketch!


Everything That Can Be Digital Will Be – But Pencil & Paper Will Get You There

Spend the day learning how to add a variety of sketching techniques to your existing work process–or learn from super smart folks who can help you upgrade your existing skills. Either way, you’ll be sure to have fun filling pages with every session you take part in!
