A Sketchbook Journey & Beyond

A Sketchbook Journey & Beyond
Following the success of Along the Water’s Edge – A Sketchbook Journey and partner workshops A Pocket Sketchbook & Plants & Pollinators – A Textile Programme I am offering a new twelve month sketchbook course in support of local Community Visual Arts.
The full workshop fee of £80 be paid directly to one of the following charity organisations:-
TAAG Arts Centre, Teignmouth, Devon.
Double Elephant Print Workshop, Exeter, Devon.
Your contributions will help to assist these creative businesses as they recover from the turmoil
of the last year. We can make a difference through your support & build new arts opportunities.
A Sketchbook Journey & Beyond.
The programme will run from October 2021 – September 2022.
Sign up in July & August – you will receive a BONUS mini project to complete in September.
There will be FOUR TOPICS, each lasting THREE MONTHS.
Each month you will receive a THEME & PROMPTS to inspire your creative research.
The monthly posts will offer ideas, examples and links to artists you might like to investigate.
………. & Beyond.
How do experienced artists use their sketchbooks?
How could I take my research, experiments & ideas out of my sketchbook then move on
to develop paintings, textiles, sculpture or printmaking?
The course will offer you ‘case studies’ to illustrate a range of different artist’s practices –
……developing ideas from the pages of the makers sketchbooks to exhibition outcomes.
I will also offer some technical guidance each month on different techniques and processes.
* painting * textiles * sculpture * printmaking

This is definitely NOT a ‘how to paint’ programme.
Instead I will offer you lots of ideas, starting points, examples and inspiration for you to explore.
I want you to experiment with materials & to develop your enjoyment of creative play.
There is no right or wrong way – Your sketchbook – Your journey.

I plan to link some of the course content to potential in-person workshops, starting in September 2021..
You might enjoy some support to explore your development ideas beyond the sketchbook.
These might be programmes at Double Elephant Print Workshop, day courses run by me in Teignmouth
or suggestions about something interesting on offer with other tutors (online or in different venues).
