Continuing Drawing: Sighting Perspective

Discover simple techniques for drawing urban and natural landscapes accurately.

Ever sat on a park bench and wished you could draw what you see? Informal perspective, also called sighting, is a simple technique for drawing urban and natural landscapes accurately. In this class we will walk through the technique and learn how to implement it while drawing the landscape outdoors. Dress for the weather, sun, and insects. Some prior experience drawing required. A materials list will be provided.

Teal Sallen grew up in Reading, Vermont. She is a 2D artist specializing in drawing, painting, printmaking, and mixed media. Teal earned her BFA in Printmaking at Massachusetts College of Art and Design in 2006. Teal’s style is representational and narrative, with a touch of magic and whimsy, and shows the artist’s enjoyment of light and color. Rather than generating a body of work in a single medium, Teal happily explores multiple ideas through print, paint, and pastel. Her curiosity about the human, the natural, and the fanciful can also be observed as a common thread in her diverse collection of work. To learn more about Teal, visit
