MONTHLY PAINT-IN: Sketchbooks
Saturday, February 10; 9:30 am-3:30 pm (set-up 9:00-9:30)
Contacts: Jan McNeill (firstname.lastname@example.org) and David Muegge 713-645-8711.
Caroline Graham teaches watercolor at both WASH and the Art League of Houston. She will discuss the properties and sizes of sketchbooks and various kinds of sketching materials. Bring your favorite sketchbook to share with the group – its paintability or sketchability.
The day will cover: how to use a sketchbook on location, taking your sketchbook to local museums, trying out new ideas, and seeing how famous artists used their sketchbooks. Caroline will assign several exercises to develop new ways to create and design using scale, words, collage, and frames of reference.
Supplies: your sketchbooks, normal paints, notebook for notes.
