Online 'Creative Sketchbooks' workshop with Karen George Art
Please ensure you have read the Terms & Conditions
‘Creative Sketchbooks’ goes online!
This is a new workshop in which I take you and your sketchbook on a journey of discovery as you join me live online for 3 workshop sessions exploring your creativity.
Using nature as a prompt I’ll be guiding you through the process I use when I work in one of my ‘creative’ concertina sketchbooks; you will get over 6 hours of teaching which will take place over 3 x 2.5 hour sessions using Zoom.
As a free introductory bonus the Zoom sessions will be recorded (technology permitting!) so that each attendee can get a chance to see the session again and work through it at their own pace (please see FAQ's and T's & C's).
How much does it cost?
Introductory Price £65 - booking open until midnight 20th October
Early Bird Price £45 - available at checkout until midnight 25th September with the coupon code EARLYBIRD45
The workshop fee is for the live Zoom sessions only.
When is it on?
Dates & times:
Tuesday 24th October 1.30 – 4pm UK BST
Tuesday 31st October 1.30 – 4pm UK GMT
Tuesday 7th November 1.30 – 4pm UK GMT
The workshops are supported by a private Facebook group where members can share their work, ask questions and support each other. During the course I will be regularly dipping into the Facebook group to support artist members and answer questions but after the course it will be a platform for members to engage with each other.
What will it cover?
Week 1: Observation
You will use observation to create a starting point in your sketchbooks to spark your creativity. Using nature as a prompt you will be exploring line and shape with a variety of mediums and techniques.
Week 2: Transformation
I will share how I abstract from my observation drawings; using techniques such as cropping, scale, rotation/reflection and identifying shape to form new compositions. It’s a session exploring possibilities using your week 1 drawings as a prompt.
Week 3: Pattern
In week 3 we will be taking the abstraction further through use of repetition, mark making, colour and collage.
