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.
