Many artists employ sketchbooks to capture daily exercises and inspire finished pieces.  This expressive class will utilize collage to create uniquely personalized sketchbooks in one continuous story that unfolds like a concertina.

In this class you have the option of making your own concertina sketchbook from recycled folders and heavy papers, or purchasing a commercial concertina sketchbook in which to work for $28, available the first day of class.

We will use acrylic paints, markers, charcoal and carbon pencils, inks, paper pieces, handmade papers and stencils, cloth, scraps and other materials using water-based adhesives to create colorful sketchbooks.  While the instructor will bring folders, heavy papers and many materials, students are highly encouraged to bring special papers, found objects and odd pieces to add to their work.  All skill levels are welcome.  Wear old clothes or an apron.

$40 materials fee plus $28 if concertina sketchbook is purchased, paid directly to the instructor on the first day of class.
