Why You Must Keep a Sketchbook - and How to Do It!

Instructor: Jill Phillips

Sundays, February 2 and 16, 1-4pm

“Je suis le cahier” - Picasso 

 

This workshop is for everyone! Keeping a sketchbook is the single most valuable thing you can do to stretch your skills, store and develop ideas, make connections, and take the kinds of messy risks that will help you grow as an artist. Drawing, writing, collecting, sticking, and problem solving all take place in these portable studios. Week 1 will be full of practical and playful hands-on ways to fill a sketchbook. We will begin with a number of prompts and suggestions to allow new discoveries to happen. In the interim weeks students will work on their own to gather information (visual and more) in these repositories of sketches and ideas. The second week we will learn from each other’s books, and continue with a second set of prompts. Hopefully this will be the beginning of a lifelong habit of always having a sketchbook close at hand.

 

Who is this workshop for:  This workshop is recommended for students of all levels.  Certificate students are required to keep a sketchbook, and this workshop would be of great value to them.
