FRIDAY, MARCH 8
11:00 AM – 12:30 PM
This workshop is free to attend online, register to hold your spot.
Class Limit: 40 Students
The demo will be separated in two parts. Each part will be approximately 45 minutes. At the first part Jens will show us how to work with Faber-Castell Watercolor Markers, Pitt Artist pen fineliner and Albrecht Dürer Watercolor pencils. Focusing on tonal values, and the reduction of color.
The second part will be with the Pitt Artist pen Dual markers with some Albrecht Dürer watercolor markers. It’s about sketching on toned paper. Jens will reveal all of his tricks, to create other special effects beside drawing just lines with the markers.
During the demo we will sketch two motifs:
- A rainy day with reflections
- A historical building on brown paper.
Every part is split in the following four sections:
- We’ll leaf through some of Jens sketchbooks to show how he works with the Faber-Castell art materials and especially with the watercolor markers and dual markers.
- What’s possible with the Faber-Castell art material. What are my personal experiences
- I sketch slowly a subject matter from a photo together with all participants.
- Participants get the opportunity to ask questions.
Jens hopes to give new impulses to the demo participants for there own art work and inspire them to live in a world of creativity.

About the Instructor:
I was born in Germany and studied Industrial design in Germany (Berlin) and Canada (Calgary). After this I founded a design studio with a friend in Berlin. After 10 years I sold the design studio and cycled around the world for two years. In this time I started travel sketching and watercoloring. After coming back I became an Urban Sketcher.
Today I teach illustration at AIDBerlin (art school in Berlin) in the winter time. During the summer month I travel with my bike or motorcycle through Europe to teach art workshops. I also give classes or demos around the world. For instance in Japan, Korea, China, Sudan, Tansania, South Africa, New Zealand and many other countries.
I wrote several books about urban sketching, drawing and watercoloring (some are translated in Spanish, Portuguese. and Russian).
If I am not on the road I live with my wife and dog in the countryside in the North of Germany and in Berlin.
