Sketching Workshop With Pooja Thacker


Sketching is a term often defined as a simple drawing but it is the root of any form of artwork. Whatever medium needs to be used the first step is always to sketch the background with precision. It is the art where your imagination is traced on paper. To give our Members the experience to learn and enlighten themselves about this traditional art form, Rooftop curated a Sketching Workshop with Pooja Thacker.

Pooja Thacker from Ahmedabad started her art journey in 2016, pursuing her career as an art teacher. She is doing a diploma in C. N VIDYALAYA from Ahmedabad. She started sketching first then it became her passion and then started it as a professional career.

Sketching Workshop Began 

Pooja began the workshop by talking a bit about her journey and experience. She had a look at the attendee’s art paper just to give them some suggestions. Then she began sketching. She showed them a rough diagram made of a few lines and circles as she was making a honey bee. Pooja spoke about how with just lines and circles they could sketch a perfect honey bee. She slowly started with the main sketch and went on to explain each step properly to the attendees. She was very elaborative about the art. Pooja also explained the shading effect and its importance of it in a sketch. The legs, the wings, and the minute detail she showed and explained to the attendees. The attendees were equally engrossed in the sketching.

Towards The End Of The Workshop

Pooja towards the end of the workshop had a look at all the attendee’s artwork that was a honey bee sketch and gave them some tips and spoke about how they could make a few changes and get a lovely sketch. Pooja was very happy looking at all the attendees and sketch and how they had nearly made a perfect honey bee. The attendees were from different parts of the country. Also, they belonged to different age groups but their love for art brought them together on a single platform. Rajasthan studio as always was successful in connecting artists and curating a magical and positive vibe together.
