Start a visual journal of your sightings, thoughts or ideas or moments in your life. When sketching one looks at things far more intently bonding the feelings generated with the drawing making it a permanent memory or a starting place for creative things to happen. We live in a 3-D world and sketching teaches us to see and express it in two dimensions. I’ve used my tiny water color kit and filled sketchbooks for years on trips to Maine, Cape Cod, New York, Washington, Texas, California, England, Italy, Greece, and sailing the Grenadines. Artists have done this for hundreds of years. Here’s your chance to join that tradition. I’ll show my sketchbooks and share some procedures on getting started. Go easy on yourself and I’ll gently help guide you. Remember these are quick sketches you don’t labor over. Time and repetition hones skills. We will sketch in and around the Art Center and practice at home in between.
