Art of the Sketchbook: Ages 11-14

The blank pages of a sketchbook can be intimidating. During this workshop, students will create a mixed-media double-page spread in their sketchbook using materials they have at home. We will incorporate old newspapers, magazines, and other papers found at home. By layering collage with colored pencils and paint, students will learn a new way to document and express themselves. We will discuss and implement these different techniques and learn about how sketchbooks can be used to describe our lives and experiences in a portable form of art. Students will begin or add to their own sketchbook that they can continue to work on at home or wherever they go! No sketchbook at home? Grab some plain white paper. Thicker paper is recommended. We will demonstrate how to create a sketchbook at the beginning of the lesson.
