An artist’s sketchbook is a doorway to the artist’s imagination – a place to work out ideas, record scenes, practice techniques and ultimately to find your own personal voice as a creative. This fun and experimental class covers many different ways of using your sketchbook to explore different materials and drawing approaches that will broaden and enrich your visual vocabulary. In each session, students will experiment with different materials and techniques that will help them reach their personal goals as artists.
*This is a great class for students wanting to create sketchbook pages to submit for art college portfolios.
