Keeping a sketchbook is an invaluable place to store, expand on and experiment with ideas, techniques and materials. They offer a safe space to make mistakes and let loose with mark making.
In this series of three workshops each session will be led by a different artist, each using different materials, techniques and sharing how they tackle creative problems, work on ideas and use a sketchbook (or not!) in their own day to day practice. This fantastic opportunity working directly with professional artists will inform and guide you as you explore how a sketchbook can be used to record thoughts, dreams and ideas. (Keeping a sketchbook is also fantastic for interviews for college and university to show off who you are as an artist).
