Discover the creative power of capturing your inspirations in a sketchbook. Artist Heather V McLeod shares the portable watercolor and ballpoint pen techniques that she uses to record her visual observations wherever she goes. For the first class, she will cover line weight, shading, and composition, as well as introducing the class to a range of contemporary artists who use the art of the sketchbook in intriguing ways. Class then will meet outside in dry weather to find inspiration; class will meet in the studio in the case of rain, to sketch Nantucket’s natural treasures from the beach and garden. Whether you are interested in personal art journaling, creatively documenting travels, and/or looking for a quick, efficient way to take notes for future image making in the studio, you will learn indispensable ways to work with watercolor and the ever-versatile ballpoint pen, far exceeding any insights you can make on your iphone. If you’ve been wanting to start a sketchbook and have never gotten around to it, take this as your sign to start. Beginners welcome.
