Hi from Kristin! Sketchbooks and Drawing Games
A sketchbook is an important tool for many artists. Among other things, it can serve as a portable studio, when you are not able to make it to yours! In this demo, artists will learn to make a sketchbook from any piece of paper with a single cut. Then we will practice some drawing games that can be played alone, or with a partner!
Paper, ideally 8.5” x 11” or larger
Pencil, any kind
Paper plate or stiff piece of paper or cardboard
Questions to ask your child before you watch:
How do you like to use your sketchbook?
What else might a sketchbook be used for?
Activities included in recorded demo:
Making a poncho sketchbook
Neverending shape game
A thousand lines game
Blind contour drawing
Reflection questions to ask your child:
Which drawing activity would you like to try again? What might you do differently?
Which drawing surprised you the most?
What will you put on the blank page of your book?
We welcome photos or videos of students sharing their work! Please email to email@example.com.
