Sketchbook Adventures Part 1
Bobbie Herron
9am - Noon
October 6th
or
November 3rd
$45 + $30 material fee paid to the Instructor

A sketchbook is not what you think it is.
It’s not an informal place for undervalued doodles; instead it can be a land of discovery, a visual record of your travels wherever you may be. Wouldn’t you love to look back through a sketchbook filled with your impressions of a trip overseas, or a trip to a nearby lake, or even a trip to your own living room? The pleasure that awaits you needs just a bit of preparation, a little instruction so that you learn about the potential potholes before you hit the road. Once you have your road map, your practice can become a daily activity, and you will be amazed at how your skill increases once you remove that pressure to create a masterpiece each time you pick up your pen. This is the beauty of a sketchbook, this is where you practice skills, this is where your art learns to fly.

In this one-day class you will:
- learn the characteristics of a variety of art papers, so in the future you will be able to confidently buy the right sketchbook for the right project
- learn composition basics and explore the potential of your everyday sketching tools
- begin with pencil and various pens, then finish using watercolor to bring your sketches to life
- see demos of each skill, then record them in your own sketchbook for later reference
- discover ways to explore seeing /drawing as meditation
- explore the work of contemporary sketchbook masters from around the world
- learn about online resources to continue your explorations at home

Materials:
NOTE: This class has an additional materials fee of $30, payable in cash or by check to the instructor at the beginning of class.
In order for the whole class to “be on the same page” literally, we will be using art kits supplied by the instructor. This kit includes a 30-page sketchbook, a quality watercolor palette with 12 colors, a water brush, four specialized pens, and a pencil. You will also receive printouts of the class lessons and reference materials to use later at home.

We will take a short break about 10:30am, so feel free to bring a snack and a thermos of tea or coffee.
For questions about the class, call Bobbie Herron in Concord NH at 603-715-9152.
