Learn together Sketchbook Club
We are delighted to be running the Jennie Maizels’ Sketchbook Club as a learn together session this Summer holiday.
This workshop is for an adult and child (8 years and over) and is a brilliant opportunity to spend time with someone important to you whilst enjoying a morning of creativity.
This is the perfect solution if you would like to enjoying drawing but feel that you can’t, don’t know where to start or would like some regular inspiration. We wouldn’t bake a cake without a recipe or play an instrument without music.
What will we cover?
Sketchbook club teaches us that it is not just about drawing from life and that there is nothing wrong with tracing, copying or being told what to do. During the course of the day we will reduce the fear of the blank page and use a variety of techniques to create some wonderful finished pieces.
Starting with a finished example you will be given full instructions and reference sheets so you can create the same design yourself. The wonderful thing about Sketchbook Club, is that every sketchbook is completely different. It is as free as drawing for yourself, but without the fear of the blank page, or the fear of going wrong. Build up a wonderful body of work in your sketchbook whilst learning new techniques, different materials and clever tricks and tips.
You’ll build up an exciting body of work in your sketchbook while:
- learning new techniques
- trying different materials
- picking up clever tricks and tips.
Even people who are convinced they ‘can’t draw’ are thrilled by the results!
How will I be taught?
You’ll be taught in our lovely studio by a friendly and experienced tutor, through demonstration and guidance as you work.
You’ll also be able to ask questions, making sure everything is clear and that you’re getting the best results you can.
Do I need any previous experience or skills?
This workshop is suitable for complete beginners.
Are materials provided? Is there anything I need to source myself?
All materials are provided.
What will I take home with me?
You’ll leave with a sketchbook, and sheets of paper, covered with your own sketches and drawings. A reminder of what you can do when you’re shown how!
Drinks and biscuits will be available.
