About This Class

f1bb62ca

I have been keeping sketchbooks since February 2015,although I had no prior watercolour background...it's true! Almost two years down the line and 10 sketchbooks later I can confidently say it's one of the best ways of feeding my creativity. I have just completed '365 days of paint' and have been sharing my sketchaday on Instagram everyday. Along the way I have found my own painting style and many other techniques that have been developed as a result of my sketchbook play.

Keeping up a daily sketchbook practice is an invaluable. Think of it as a creative journey down a path with unexpected benefits,a few detours, but ultimately a fun one if you stay on it long enough!  Sketchbook Practice : Grow In Your Art Everyday is perfect for folks who have never kept a sketchbook ( like myself prior to 2015 ) or are just painting for pleasure or to improve your skills. In this class I will help you discover why sketchbook practice has so many benefits, they include:

- quick guide to the art materials I use

- they're a safe and fun place to explore your art

- chart your progress as an artist

- experiment with new techniques and mediums

- to feed your creative soul

- in time your own unique style will emerge

I will also talk you through a short watercolour tutorial to get you started on your sketchbook practice, with some basic tips. Don't worry there will be further tutorial classes in the future.

Even within a few short weeks and months you will most likely have a body of work that will chart your creative progress and see the strides you have made improving your skills. This in turn will boost your confidence and help in other areas of your creative life.

Loved this class! Ohn Mar's easy and warm approach demonstrates that the task of keeping a daily sketchbook can be fun and exciting. Thanks so much for inspiring me!
This was a really inspirational course. It got me to pull out my sketchbook right away and just get at it. I'd been in somewhat of an art rut and this course helped me push through it. Thank you!
Great class!
