This Developing Sketchbooks online workshop commences on Monday 8th January 2018 [finishes 21st January 2018] and consists of a series of emails, videos and blogs which will guide you through the development of a sketchbook. By the end of the workshop you’ll have a full & jam packed book full of ideas and techniques which you can refer back to again and again.
Explore a series of easy and exciting practical exercises which you can add to any design project – they’ll help you develop imagery and are key elements to any sketchbook.
Here’s an overview of the areas we’ll cover:
- Lose the fear: starting a new book is full of woes, let me show you how!
- The essential ingredients.
- No panic drawing/observation
- Found and abstracted
- Cut and enhance
- Repeat and play
A supplies list will be sent to you a few weeks before the class starts – to be honest I’m going to guess you’ll have most of it hanging around – but I’ll give you some time to gather everything.
Information will be sent to you over a 7 day period, but you will have access to the password protected blog/videos etc for 2 weeks, so you can take your time and re-watch videos as required. [you will need suitable computer based skills to access information – answering emails, engaging on blogs, uploading images.] So that you truly engage in the workshop environment I success you set definite time aside for yourself to create – after all if this were the studio version you would spend a complete day engrossed in creativity – give yourself that time!
Online interaction with your fellow students is very beneficial and this will be a key point of contact and feedback: there is a private Facebook group where you can share images of your results.
Thank you Dionne for another spectacular course. I don’t think I have ever enjoyed on-line classes as much as yours, for content, for inspiration, for your considered, considerable and considerate on-line presence and for the way we have all made such great connections. It’s been great feeling a part of such a wonderful community.
A comparable studio workshop would be £70- £80 per day, plus your travel and accommodation costs on top – learning online represents significant savings and can offer you more time to full absorb the information. If there are any other workshop you would like to see translated in this way, please let me know your thoughts.
