Halloween Sketchbook-Field Drawing with Winston Chappell at Hollywood Forever

Autumn is here, so it’s time for the ICAA Southern California’s signature Halloween & Dia de los Muertos field sketching class at the iconic Hollywood Forever Cemetery. Join us for a measured drawing class amongst some of Hollywood’s most famous deceased and their classically inspired “forever homes.”

Since the Renaissance, architects have sketched and measured all facets of architecture in portable bound books. Architects have used the sketchbook to record historical artifact in both representational sketches evoking three dimensions and carefully measured drawings drawn to scale. The elaborate tombs at Hollywood Forever provide excellent modestly scaled subjects for students to practice documenting and capturing classical detail.

The course will be led by architect Winston Chappell, and will introduce the student to a method of sketchbook drawing that is focused on accurately measured drawings of architectural details, drawn-to-scale in a sketchbook. Festive attire is welcome, but optional!

Limited capacity, plein-air class
