Learn to paint quickly to capture any memory in this 30-minute art class with artist and urban sketcher Ernest Barbaric (@ebarbaric). He’ll show you how to use limited supplies you can pack into a tiny bag and take with you anywhere. You’ll follow a simple process - line, mood, shadow shapes - to capture the essence of what you see.
