Traveling with your Sketchbook - Online

Instructor: Susan Abbott

Daily Zoom meetings 10 am—12 pm, daily independent assignments, plus a virtual classroom for critiques, instructional videos, and sharing ideas.

This popular workshop teaches students to use drawing, collage, watercolor and text to record their travel experiences. Participants learn to use their sketchbook as a personal journal–and also to make it a work of art! We practice drawing quickly with many fun exercises. We’ll “travel” through our home and neighborhoods with focused, fun assignments, and for inspiration and new ideas look at many artists’ sketchbook journals. Past students say, ““This class changed my life!” by teaching them how to travel with more sensory awareness. All levels of drawing experience welcome, including beginners.

Student reviews are wonderful.

“Your class helped me get a sense of direction and purpose when traveling. Now that my trip is over, I can look back to places and drawing with fond memories. Thank you!”

“This class really helped me on my recent trip to the Greek islands. I went with a group of watercolorists and my journal was the envy of the group.”
