Artist and illustrator, Ria Sharon guides you through a playful exploration of sketching as a tool to nurture your artistic practice. In this 36-minute class, Ria will show you her simple (and seemingly magical) techniques to make time and space in your everyday life for creativity. You will begin a sketchbook that you can continue to come back to for inspiration in the days and weeks to come.
This class is perfect for anyone who is hungry for a right-brained activity. No previous art experience is required, just 10 minutes a day and an openness to fun... and yes, to a little magic!
Create a collection of sketches every day as the class unfolds and in the days following, using the techniques you learned in the videos.
You can START YOUR PROJECT as soon as you've watched the DAY 1 video. Simply take a picture of your first sketch and upload it to the Project Gallery.
Complete the prompt I share in each day's video. This includes posting an image from your sketchbook in the class project section and answering one reflective question every day.
Explore the following resources at your leisure, if you feel the need for inspiration and/or encouragement. These are books, courses, and people I mention in the class.
• Blog (thoughts on process)
• Art & Fear by David Bayles and Ted Orland
and more fun books for practice...
