Sketchbook Project - LINES



 
A preview of my DRAWN LINES booklet for the Sketchbook Project. 359.10-4 at the Brooklyn Art Library, soon to be digitized so anyone on the vast web can view.

February 11, 2019






From my course, DRAWN LINES. Kathy is a student and these are her first drawings in her hand-made book: types of lines, a simple drawing, and a walk with line. Join Kathy for FREE, and become an editor of sort (a critic) to help me make the course better for others, who later pay for the 15 lessons. The next is textures. Come and have fun!  Pencil and paper is all you need for these simple, short, and successful sketches.

Sign up at the right where you see 'Course for DRAWN LINES!'

Join my drawing course!

Art is fun and easy. 
We have the ABILITY.
 
Come on the journey with line. This how-to-study will help you see lines that are around you everywhere, which you organized as Drawn Line sketchbook. Sign up here on this page, or on my Facebook Art Page.

The fifteen lessons are relaxing and playful. Simple rules, no mistakes just drawing lines with pencils, a tool used during our school days. A device that is perfect for experimentation. If you don’t have a sketchbook, we will make one. If you want, use a piece of paper for each lesson, even on a post-it pad, or any surface you like. Remember, the larger the size of the paper the more time you spent on sketching. When done with our study, you will have many works of ART! 

WE ARE ALL ARTIST!

Decisive for StketchBook Project

Decisive is the title of my piece for the Sketchbook project Infinite Sketch, which will be on display in a huge, mega art piece with of all the cards. 

The Sketchbook Project kicked off this new challenge. “Think of it as an endless visual story, connecting people around the globe through a single format. More than a stand alone art project, Infinite Sketch is a way of connecting with people from around the galaxy.” My entry prompted by the word ‘decisive’ is on a card 5” by 7”. The Infinite Sketches when combined will be in a physical and digital exhibition of one very long piece of art! EXHIBITION DATE is to announced.
