CALLing all visual artists and people who enjoy painting!
Develop a sketch book as a creative response to events of the day/week, to travel, to learn and other explorations. We are a group of people who enjoy the world of sketches and journals. Some of us are beginners. Some of us have used our skills professionally. We all have experiences that have shaped our perceptions and are interested in responding to our world through drawing. Daily and weekly drawing sharpens our focus, brings forward new ideas, skills and awareness. Various techniques and materials are introduced and developed in each session. Past and current trends are explored as they provide inspiration and depth to our own development. We take turns sharing our skills, developing partnerships and see each other as resources for further learning and collaboration.
A sketchbook and portable materials such as watercolour, felt tips, pencil, pen, pastels, conte etc. are brought to each workshop. Each session is an exploration in developing a visual creative response to our world. We develop technical skills, try new materials, new concepts and share our research on drawing and sketching. We learn and share digital platforms for following new ideas, links and learning sites. We take turns volunteering to share our knowledge and skills.
