Whether you draw regularly or are just getting started, Sketchbook Club is a fun way to grow your own creative practice in the company of others. These classes are materials-based, as we explore everything from watercolours and gouache to charcoal and pastel. Ideal for beginners who are looking for an introduction to a variety of media, and for those with more experience who are looking for inspiration and community.
We’ll begin with warm-up activities and a demonstration. Each session, Sarah will demo a different art material or technique for you to try. After plenty of time to draw together, we will close with a show and tell, as we share our sketches with the group.
Here are the themes for the months ahead:
- January sessions: watercolour florals
- February sessions: soft pastel dreamscapes
- March sessions: mark-making with pen and ink
Materials: Please bring your own sketchbook, we will provide all other materials.
