This workshop is focused on helping participants to understand their relationship to artmaking, so naturally, the class will be formatted around conversation and a cozy sketchbook session. Students will be drawing, writing, collaging, and talking throughout the class. They will be guided through a series of prompts examining their relationship to their artwork, and the ways they stop themselves from making space for it in their lives. The goal is to offer students strategies for developing a sketchbook habit that they can maintain, and helping them to defend their artmaking practice. Students may or may not arrive with an intention to explore a specific topic, and all experience levels are encouraged to participate.
STUDENTS MUST BRING:
One Sketchbook: Brand-new, in-progress, or so hated by the participant that they want to cover everything in it. Must have at least 20 - 30 pages that they are willing to do all kinds of things to.
Scissor or X-acto Knife
Glue Stick (Acid-Free/pH Neutral)
