Join Split Cove Rock for Make a Sketchbook / Fill a Sketchbook with Abigail Read and Sandy Weisman. In this workshop you will have the dual pleasure of binding your own sketchbook and then using it! Making a book for yourself is a pleasure all its own. You will make two sketch books with different bindings, using different papers and in different sizes available for you to work in immediately.
Sketching is distinctly different from drawing. It is quick, decisive and involves more observation and less attention to perfecting a line. We will explore ways to record a concise visual experience using pencil, pen, markers and watercolors. It is about memory, and a brief recording of that memory as much as it is about observation. As such, you will learn how to distill what you see into a few marks, colors and shapes.
