Project Description

A Sketch-a-Day

Create a collection of sketches every day as the class unfolds and in the days following, using the techniques you learned in the videos.

You can START YOUR PROJECT as soon as you've watched the DAY 1 video. Simply take a picture of your first sketch and upload it to the Project Gallery.

DELIVERABLE

Complete the prompt I share in each day's video. This includes posting an image from your sketchbook in the class project section and answering one reflective question every day.

OPTIONAL

If you’d like to be featured on my blog, riasharon.com or on Instagram, follow me and tag me on instagram and include #sketchbookmagic @riasharon on your images. I’ll be doing regular roundups!

RESOURCES
