Multi-Session ClassMeets four Saturdays, January 8-29th
Come explore the magic of working tiny – both in our sketch size, and the size of our sketchbooks!
The big benefits to scaling down? Time – tiny sketches are quick, adding creativity time into almost any day! Productivity – more tiny sketches = fuller (small) sketchbooks! Exploration – any object, theme, idea, feeling, color is sketch-able when working small! Technique – hone observational skills with attention to tiny details! Reduce creative anxiety by simplifying – rather than tackle the entire landscape, capture the bud; not the whole eye, just an eyelash; instead of the bouquet, the petal. Uniquely you – dinky drawings help reveal your artistic style! Motivation – the best sketchbook is a well-used sketchbook – small sketchbooks are portable, flexible, usable, and most important, fun!
No art experience necessary, just an openness to experimentation, discovery and delight in the beauty of all things small!
