Intro
The objective of this course is to provide students with a new tool that they can incorporate into their creative process. We will go through the stages prior to the materialization of the piece: inspiration, ideas and prototyping.
Utilizing a sketchbook provides a structured approach to developing each artistic creation. It begins with your theme and you’ll work on research, sketching, sampling, prototyping and final design.
Sketchbooks also enable you to revisit previous pieces, re-design sketches and improve upon them, as well as reduce the margin of error when manufacturing the piece.

All of our online workshops are recorded and, with purchase of the seat in the class, you have access to the recording(s) between workshop sessions as well as for 45 days after the workshop ends.
