Traveling Sketchbook

with Mary Byrom


This traveling sketchbook summer class is for everyone! With just a pen, pencil and sketchbook you can start this creative adventure. This class begins with an overview of different types of sketchbooks, how you can use them and the various supplies you will need.

We will look at various techniques you can apply to your sketchbook. Beginner to experienced artists will love this process. Sketching develops your observing and drawing skills, increases your visual vocabulary, expands your creativity and is very relaxing. Individual expression and creativity is encouraged. Every week we will meet at a different location. For all levels. This class is perfect for beginners who would like to try a new experience with a minimum expense for supplies. Experienced artists will have fun improving their skills with new techniques.
