Sketchbook is a series of guided mini-workshops to keep your creative energy flowing with the seasons. Creative practices are not only healing and rewarding in and of themselves; they also train the mind to explore, see possibilities, solve problems, and make discoveries. Your sketchbook is a journal, a doodle pad, a release valve, a confessional.
Each 1-hour session takes you through a sequence of accessible writing and drawing prompts to help you reflect, release, play, and imagine. We meet every 2-3 weeks, exploring themes that reflect the movement of the seasons in the Northern Hemisphere: the pure potential of Winter hibernation, the fresh growth of Spring, the bright, expansiveness of Summer, and the release of Fall.
- A sketchbook or journal with thick, blank pages (here’s one and here’s another)
- Everyday pen or pencil
- Some combination of crayons, colored pencils, ink pens/markers, paint pens/markers, and/or oil pastels
- For some sessions, you will be asked to bring specific items such as different size bottle caps, cups, and jar lids or paper/magazine clippings, needle and thread, tape, or glue.
All sessions are held on Zoom. You can leave your camera on or off, ask questions or just follow along on your own. All sessions will be recorded and made available in case you miss any.
If you have any questions about Sketchbook, or to arrange payment, please write to Sharna.
