Let’s re-conceptualize the sketchbook! Instructor Tara L. Tieso did and has never looked back. She learned that you don’t need to know how to draw,  or have specialized art materials, to keep a sketchbook. Fill pages exploring themes, form, color, movement, feeling, pattern, mapping and more with fun, free-form abstract exercises that will make your sketchbook uniquely yours. And, discover how anything around you can be a used to prompt your creativity in the moment. It’s also a great way to discover ideas that can lead to other artwork.

Art wherever you are!
