During our first meeting we discussed sketchbooks. Everyone brought one or two sketchbooks and we passed them around so we could peek into them. Jean Wells discusses some of the ways she uses a sketchbook and encourages the reader to develop this habit.
As part of the fun, each of us selected a piece of paper in a bag with a word written on it. The idea was to do some writing about the word, then create a drawing based on the word. It was fun to see what everyone created. This group plans to meet monthly, a chapter and set of exercises per month, and develop a finished textile construction that will encompass some of the skills that will be worked on throughout the experience. Here are a few pics from our meeting.
We were fortunate to meet in a private room of a local restaurant,
where one of our members is the manager!
Guess whose spot this is?! Why am I alway so messy?
Besides all this, I brought my travel set of gouache paints.
Here are the sketchbooks after completion of our drawings!
I wonder how many of you are in a sketching or design group? Are you thinking about forming one, or have you been in a drawing group in the past? I would be interested to know about it! Please leave a comment and tell me what you are doing!
