Later this month I'm teaching a sketching workshop for DePaul Art Museum. The class is online via Zoom - here are the details:
Sketching Your Day
Wednesday, July 29, 2:00 PM CDT
The workshop is free and open to all skill levels; registration is required and attendance is limited. Click here to register with DePaul Art Museum.
In this workshop we will learn to tell the stories of our days by sketching with pens, markers, and highlighters that you already have around your house, and any kind of paper. But sketchbooks and notebooks that you've been "saving" are preferred!
We'll find easy ways to draw through our daily tasks and keep up with the practice of sketching.
The idea of using materials you can find around your house was inspired by the late Peter Bowman. He would come to the Memphis Urban Sketchers gatherings with a plastic bag full of random tools. Then I realized that I have a plastic bag full of random tools! I figured many people have pens and pencils and highlighters around the house, plus crayons and kids' markers.
And for sketchbooks, any paper or notebook will do, really. We don't need fancy materials to tell the stories of our day.
This is a typical spread of sketches from a couple of days. The more of these you create, the more of a story you will tell!
Sketchwork is sketches and work about sketching - teaching, making art, art supplies, books, sketchers, artists, Urban Sketchers, Memphis Urban Sketchers, and traveling.
