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? 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 your art learns to fly.

In this one-day class you will:

- learn what to look for in a variety of art papers, drawing tools, and watercolor sets

- 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


NOTE: This class has an additional one-time materials fee of $30, payable in cash or by check to the School 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.
