Home /  Courses And Programs / Drawing Ideas: Developing Your Sketchbook

Drawing in your sketchbook regularly is one of the best ways to improve your drawing skills and to exercise your creativity, as well as develop and record ideas for larger drawings and paintings. Great ideas spring from sincere observation of the world around us. Class will meet weekly to draw in a variety of locations. Weekly assignments between classes will help maintain your momentum. One final drawing or painting will be assigned, using any element observed in your sketchbook. Instruction includes demonstrations as well as individual and group critiques.

Note: Please note, for the Spring this course will be held via Zoom as a virtual classroom.  All class times will remain the same, instead of attending in-person you will be expected to log into Zoom at the class start time each week.
