- Lesson Details
In this lesson, instructor Catherine Bobkoski will introduce you to valuable tips and techniques for developing a sketchbook practice. You will learn a variety of tools that can be used in your sketchbook to make the habit of sketchings fun and experimental. Catherine will demonstrate how she utilizes sketchbooks in her own work. You will be given an assignment to complete that can potentially be critiqued in the next Live Class session.
Join instructor Catherine Bobkoski for an 8-week interactive Live Class, where you will discover a relaxed approach to sketching that will help you grow as an artist, discover new techniques, and hone your observation skills. Expand your horizons by playing with your materials, embracing “mistakes” and layering different mediums. Fine artist and teacher Catherine Bobkoski will guide you through sketching techniques using a ballpoint pen, water-soluble pencil, watercolor paint, and gouache. Each week of class will focus on skill-building exercises and a new sketching prompt. Developing a sketching habit will encourage you to find inspiration everywhere and draw more consistently. Reference images will be provided throughout the class, but students are also encouraged to draw from direct observation. Along the way, Catherine will provide critiques and helpful advice as you progress through the class. Sketching can be a fun and soothing way to develop your art practice, no matter where you are in your artistic journey.

Certificate details will be announced mid-way through the term.
