Sketchbook Play : The Art of Keeping a Visual Journal
Come learn to play, sketch, paint and record your daily life in a handmade book.
This class is geared for the sketch-phobic, the ultimate beginner,
the "I always meant to," the "when I retire", the imperfectly perfect Artist in all of us.
No experience needed, no magical talents requested,
just bring your own wonderful self.
In this class we will spend the first week creating our very own long stitch bound
sketchbook using vintage book covers, hot press watercolor paper, and waxed linen thread.
This simple bookbinding method is delightful because our books will open flat
giving us full access to all of our pages.
Weeks two through six we will learn the basics of contour drawing using everyday
objects as our models. We will continue on learning about watercolor techniques,
hand-lettering, fancy borders and more!
Classes will begin with a demonstration and are followed up with plenty of work time
which includes, coaching, and creative cheerleading from Suki.
We will study and draw botanicals, vintage household curiosities, gifts from the sea
and forest, and anything else that strikes our fancy. We will embrace recording
our daily lives and objects in a visual format, which is such a treat to
look back through and treasure.
