This workshop will give you the opportunity to understand how to make your sketchbook a valuable part of your art development. A sketchbook is a safe place to explore your imagination, doodle, put down your thoughts or just vent. Nothing is too precious to keep from your sketch- book. The sketchbook can be a repository for your artistic thoughts, store ideas, solve problems, make mistakes, and experiment with imagery and tools. Most importantly, the sketchbook is a place to play.
