Lecture & Book Signing: Thursday, Nov. 21, 5:30 – 7:30 pm
Native Places, the book, is a collection of 64 of Harmon’s watercolor sketches – of buildings, landscapes and cityscapes, everyday objects and ordinary places — paired with brief essays inspired by those sketches. The sketches, some as much as 30 years old, convey the delight he finds in each subject.
Urban Sketching Workshop: Saturday, Nov. 23, 10:00 am – 1:00 pm
Frank has conducted Urban Drawing Workshops for the American Institute of Architect’s National Convention; for various city, state, and regional AIA chapters and sections; and at Auburn University’s renowned Rural Studio in Hale County, Alabama.
He shows participants how to look more closely at the particulars of a place and the nuances of objects within that place, then express their observations more clearly through sketching.
