Learn the benefit of daily sketching.
Fun Weekend Workshop:
- May 6, 9:30am-4pm
- May 7, 9:30am-4pm
Build your art skills in a fun and portable way. Used for everything from project planning to nature and portrait studies to journalling a great trip. Sketchbooking can increase your art skills quickly.
Sketchbook is a place for working out visual thinking for any idea or project that you are working on. Your sketchbook can also be a private space for personal exploration and practice.
There are as many ways to use sketchbooks as there are artists. While I often use mine to work out ideas, designs and details for larger projects, I also use them as journals, for recording travels, studies of landscape, architecture and people.
We will use various creative examples to inspire you and give you confidence to use your sketchbook as a playground of visual ideas, a place to let your muse take over, and a workhorse for developing drawing, painting, composition and collage skills.
This Sketchbooking workshop will give you the tools and the confidence you need to grow your creative practice. Adding this technique to your artistic skills will take your creativity to the next level.
