When you get your first sketchbook, you become a hunter for ideas. “Pray comes to the hunter”, says Olya, definitely meaning the sketchbook. When you have a sketchbook, you start getting a lot of ideas. You never know when your best idea will strike you, so you want to carry your sketchbook everywhere. Everything suddenly becomes worth your attention, and you begin to fill it with random drawings – some of which may turn out to be your body of work in the future!

A sketchbook is a fundamental tool for artists – it’s a must-have for any creative. In this course, you’ll learn how to use it effectively to lay the foundation for all of your future work.

Benefits of the Course

You can use it like a journal, record your most exciting impressions while travelling, sketch the faces you find interesting – to get practice, draw animals in different positions, capture your family members, jot down your own reflection as the evidence of your existence, compose imaginary scenes, try different art supplies – and you don’t have to show any of that to anyone: your sketchbook is your private art kitchen – and a wealth of material.

In this course you will learn how to make a sketchbook indispensable for your art practice and fill it up with fascinating records. The objective is to learn how to use a sketchbook to catalyze creativity, gather ideas for art, and use in your travels.

Appropriate for all levels.
