Sketchbook experiments

We will explore creating images in our sketchbooks using a variety of
techniques, with an emphasis on process and experimentation. We will
learn about tone, mark making, observation, and imagination. We will be
inspired by the work of other artists and for our own work we will draw
on a variety of sources including spaces around the college, still life and
reference images.
