Materials List

With the right guidance, the humble sketchbook can easily become a doorway to a world beyond your imagination. Of course professional artists have used sketchbooks for centuries to dash off a quick sketch or make a plan for a future masterpiece.  This same tool can be used for an even greater purpose: to sharpen your eyesight, open your heart, and provide a guaranteed road to joy and confidence.  
This class welcomes true beginners as well as those who are already comfortable with art supplies. In this three-hour workshop you will:
- learn the back-story to a vibrant new movement called “Sketchbook Skool”
- explore the work of contemporary sketchbook masters from around the
   world
- watch a brief demo, then join in to create sketchbook pages that will loosen up your style and your thinking

With any luck, this could be the beginning of a beautiful friendship between you, your sketchbook, and the beautiful world surrounding us.

The Daily Sketch
Start a daily art practice
Robert Dorr
February 3rd 10am - 2pm Bring a lunch
$60

We will be using different methods of taking an inspiration image (I use Pinterest, and have a board of these pictures) and abstracting them, to capture what it was that inspired you.

To do this, I'll be teaching you how to use different materials and supplies. I'll show how you can use rubbing alcohol to make watercolor and chalk pastel separate into special effects. We'll be using clear gesso, gloss varnish, spray enamel, watercolors, gouache, chalk pastel, possibly colored pens, and permanent markers.

Dress to get messy.

Supplies list,
*Spray rubbing alcohol
*hairdryer
*blank notebook, (if you want to start your daily practice today. Otherwise, we'll provide paper) about the notebook, don't worry about the quality of the paper. The five dollar ones at Michael's are perfect.
*watercolor set from Michael's $5 I particularly like those paints, they are so versatile. They're halfway between gouache and watercolor, and the colors seperate very nicely.
