Sketchbook? Even Though I Can’t Draw? taught by Tara Tieso
Multi-Session ClassClass meets 4 Saturdays: June 5-26 from 10:30-12pm Central Time
All are welcome. No drawing or art experience necessary!
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. Summer is the perfect time to settle in with your favorite sketchbook and materials and fill pages exploring themes, form, color, movement, feeling, pattern, mapping and more with fun, free-form abstract exercises and representational elements 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.
Virtual class –Art wherever you are!
Not a how to drawing class, rather, this is an opportunity to explore the myriad ways (beyond representational sketching) a sketchbook can become our companion, in any area of creativity we choose. We will do some exercises in class, with prompts for you to use in your sketchbook during the week too!
