Monday Evenings, Live Over Zoom

5 Weeks: November 20th - December 18th. 7-9:30pm (NYC Time)

Looking to build or refine your sketchbook practice? Join me Monday evenings from 7-9:30pm (NYC Time!) over Zoom for five weeks, 11/20 - 12/18, and work towards filling a sketchbook with me!

Each week we'll look at examples of great art by both historic and contemporary artists that reference other artworks, common visual themes, or processes of image development and create prompts to keep us moving forward in our own practice. This round we're specifically looking at different ways artists have produced "mastercopies" and how we can utilize some of those insights in our own work while continuing to develop a rich sketchbook practice.

Sketchbooks are all about studying, exploring, playing, and making art for ourselves (no deadlines for shows or commissions here!) Building a personalized sketchbook practice takes time, and throughout this online course (and with the support of our peers), we'll work towards filling up a sketchbook and do just that! This course has been designed to allow for a ton of breathability- sketchbooks are a personal thing, and you're welcome to take the material in whatever way you'd like- as such, this online course is suitable for anybody interested, regardless of their level of experience. You're welcome to pick up a new sketchbook for the course or work in one you already have!

In Addition to the Live Zoom Course:

A Zoom course can't cover *all* of this material, so to help you continue to develop the personal art practice you need to create the work you love, we've included a number of videos and PDF documents to help continue to guide you on your journey!

  • Sketchbook Survey

    A detailed look at different types of sketchbooks to help you decide what your next sketchbook purchase might be!

  • Mastercopy Collection

    I've put together a collection of mastercopies for us to reference in our course. Learn about new artists, and jumpstart your ideas when you're looking for something to sketch from!
