Sketch Books

Sketch books are for everyone - children included. Good for ideas, poetry, notes, doodles or whatever. Different sizes: small ones fit in jacket pockets or bags, larger ones for use in the studio and ‘official’ work on a project; brainstorming, notes on different techniques, inspiring quotes and other artists. Serviettes, programmes and newspaper can also be used when out and about and feeling inspired. Mentors encourage daily sketching to hone drawing skills.
Sketchbooks can be used in a variety of ways. Enjoy regular sketching times with friends in gardens, cities, museums etc; these sketches are a great resource. A sketch of a stuffed zebra head in the Brighton Booth museum morphs via a Matisse inspired papercut some years later into a logo.
