Sketching as Journaling

November 13, 2020 @ 12:15 pm - 3:00 pm

INSTRUCTOR: Megan Klco Kellner
DATE: Friday, Nov 13

Learn how artists use sketching to record their thoughts and observations and explore how keeping a sketch journal can deepen your creativity. Students will look at a variety of artist journals and use writing and sketching prompts to begin a journal of their own. This class could be taken in combination with Observational Watercolor
or on its own.

What will be covered:

 Discuss sketching as a means of keeping a personal record
 Finding a practice that works for you: repetition, recording/sketching the same space over time, routine sketching/daily sketching, collection, collecting significant images, words or small objects, free writing, collecting phrases, stream of conscious writing, short poem forms
 Tips for building a sketching/journaling habit

Students will participate in guided writing and sketching activities and see examples of a wide variety of creative journaling practices. You will come away with a broken-in sketchbook and tools and
prompts to build your own practice.
