Using Your Sketchbook as a Tool to Creativity: ~

$50. / person 10 am- 4 pm with a 1 hour lunch break. Students would bring their own materials. Most people will have what is needed: a sketchbook, watercolour paper, watercolours or acrylics watered down, graphite pencils, eraser, white oil pastel or white acrylic paint or China White watercolour, permanent ink pens, brushes. Learn how to use your sketchbook to capture your response for later and to inspire future work. Better than a photo, a sketch is a visual journal capturing notes about how you processed what captured your interest on a particular day. We will talk about designing a page around a theme, value sketches, colour thumbnails, different media to use, etc. Max.12 students. Preregister by calling 662-3629.
