About This Class

Has it always been one of your goals to start a sketchbook or pick up drawing but you haven't gotten around to it? Are you discouraged with your current sketchbooks and want some tips for sprucing them up? Need some inspiration or prompts to incorporate into your sketchbooks? Simply looking for another artist's perspective on these books? Look no further, this is the class for you!

In this class, I will go through a series of exercises that I like to use in my own sketchbooks and show examples of how I execute these techniques. You can use these exercises as ways to get started in your sketchbook when you get stuck; using one of these ideas is a great way to get your creative juices flowing when you're attempting to draw every day.

In the end, this class is about having fun, so I hope you enjoy yourself as you work through the exercises I've provided!
