Sketching Workshop: Lake Placid

September 13 @ 1:00 pm September 14 @ 4:00 pm

Whether you have no experience or are a seasoned artist, this hands-on workshop will connect you to your inner artist and to the places you know and love! Through this workshop, participants will learn how to hone their observations to capture the details, scale, and special features present in the historic buildings across our region through sketching. In this two-day experience, participants will gain a new perspective on exploring the finer details of the built environment. On Friday, we will gather for a short, introductory class that will prepare us for the following day, when we will put pencil to paper and sketch Lake Placid’s vibrant, historic winter sports, civic architecture, and its bustling, scenic streetscapes. This year also marks the centennial of the very first Winter Olympics in Chamonix, France, where the Lake Placid region’s own Charles Jewtraw took home gold in speedskating. Come celebrate this anniversary by sketching the village’s iconic winter sports architecture and more. Attendees will walk out of this workshop with their own finished work and the skills to sketch buildings across the Adirondacks and beyond.

This workshop is led by architect and AARCH board member, JB Clancy. This event is co-sponsored by our colleagues and friends at the Lake Placid Olympic Museum and the Olympic Regional Development Authority.

The Friday, September 13 introductory class starts at 1 PM and ends at 4 PM, and the Saturday, September 14 hands-on workshop begins at 10 AM and ends around 4 PM. This event requires pre-registration and is first come, first served.
