Memorialize your year and illustrate some memories to look back on.

Skillshare Premium Members are invited to join us on Monday, December 7th at 3:00 PM EST for a live online Zoom session with Samatha Dion Baker as she walks us through an easy illustration activity she’s enjoyed this year—creating time capsules! The session will run for approximately 60 minutes. Click the “Remind Me” button above to register! 

Samantha Dion Baker is an illustrator and graphic designer based in Brooklyn. She is best known for her daily sketch journal pages, which she shares with over 91K followers on her Instagram and which inspired her two books: Draw Your Day and the Draw Your Day Sketchbook. She’s already shared her approach with over 21K students on Skillshare, and is excited to teach more!

This live session will include:

  • A discussion of the value of memorializing a moment in time and sketching out memories to revisit later
  • An overview of Samantha’s sketch journaling technique, including tips for sketching, adding color, and using typography to share details
  • A chance to create your own illustrated time capsule alongside Samantha, with plenty of prompts to help you recognize what you want to remember from this time

This activity is great for all ages and all experience levels (even if you feel like you can’t draw!). All you’ll need to participate is some paper, whatever art materials you prefer, and an envelope to hold your time capsule inside. Throughout the session, you’ll be encouraged to work alongside Samantha and ask questions. Feel free to add questions in advance of the event (discussion forum below) or bring them live to the Zoom session. We look forward to seeing you soon!
