Another Sketch-In!Jane Davies here. I'm really excited to be co-teaching with Sue Bleiweiss again this fall at another Sketch-In at Ink About It in Westford, MA. This time it is a two-day event, though you can sign up for either day or both. Space is limited for the Sketch In so call Ink About It at 978-392-0421 to register soon!
In this two day event you’ll explore several different techniques for adding imagery, texture and color to your sketchbook pages.
Saturday: For our first day together we’ll spend the morning exploring several easy and fundamental drawing and sketching exercises. These exercises are designed to help you translate the shapes of what you want to draw into actual images on your pages. We’ll take a short break for lunch and then spend the afternoon working with watercolors in both pan, tube, crayon and pencil form.Sunday: We’ll spend the first part of day two together painting paper. Jane and Sue will demonstrate some fun and easy ways create a layer of color on your papers that can later be used as a base for collage or drawing over. You’ll spend the morning spraying, scraping, brushing, sponging and dripping paint to create pages bursting with energy and color. We’ll take a short break for lunch and then spend the afternoon making a hard cover book that you can fill with the papers you made in the morning.
I hope some of you in the northeast can join us! We'll definitely be posting follow-up photos for inspiration. Space is limited for the Sketch In so call Ink About It at 978-392-0421 to register soon!
