Traveling with your Sketchbook

Instructor: Susan Abbott

Zoom classes 10am—12:30pm, March 24th, 25th, 26th, and 27th, 2023

Home assignments each afternoon

In this popular workshop, participants utilize drawing, collage, watercolor and text to record their travel –and at home– experiences. Students learn to use their sketchbook as a personal journal and work of art! Students practice fast-paced drawing with many fun exercises. They will “travel” through their home and neighborhoods while completing focused and fun assignments. For inspiration and new ideas, students will look at many artists’ sketchbook journals. Past students say, ““This class changed my life!” by showing them how to explore with deeper 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.”
