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 captivated your interest on a particular day. In this workshop participants will learn about designing a page around a theme, value sketches, colour thumbnails, different media to use, etc.

Students should bring some magazines or images that they would like to work from. Students should bring their own materials.   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.
