SKETCHBOOKS IN ITALY with Ken O’Connell

May 28, 2022 - June 7, 2022

CONTACT INSTRUCTOR

Sketching with Ken is an adventure in seeing the world with fresh eyes. You will learn to work portably, quickly, and with an eye towards capturing fragments of wonderful experiences. The sketchbook is your portable studio and your portable history. The spirit of the rough sketch is to see simply and to learn to draw and color that vision. You learn to see by sketching, and fragments become dream catchers for whole experiences.

Artists throughout history have used sketchbooks to make notes and work out drawing problems for their work in other media. Today we bring the combined benefits of sketchbooks with journals, notebooks, scrapbooks, and practice a regular use of the sketchbook so it becomes a companion and partner in our basic connection to experience.
