Central Library

Madison, WI

This two-part workshop is for anyone looking to develop or deepen a relationship with their sketchbook. Maybe you don’t consider yourself an artist but you have that creative itch, and yet ruining a blank page with a “terrible drawing” is paralyzing. Maybe you need a break from the creative work you do at your day job but want to find a process for personal creative play. In the first session we will make our own custom sketchbooks, look at sketchbook inspiration, and get comfortable "ruining" a blank page. The second session will include more sketchbook exercises, discussions about why we draw, and tools to help you cultivate a sustainable sketchbook drawing practice that can enrich your life! ***Those that register for this workshop will need to attend both dates (1/29 and 2/26). Only one registration required on 1/29 date, ages 16+
