A sketchbook can be used as a space to play, germinating an artist’s ideas and taking their work in new directions.
This Summer School will start with a day of drawing around Leith Docks, recording impressions and observations of the surrounding area in a sketchbook. Moving back into the studio, students will be encouraged to use their sketchbooks to take the work they have done further and develop options for a resolved piece of work. Collage, printmaking and colour-use will all be experimented with, to explore how the creative use of materials can inspire and help develop work outside the sketchbook.
