Filling a Sketchbook: Ruler Drawings

By Paula Briggs

Each week during the AccessArt Art lab for ages 11, 12, and 13 at Wysing Arts Centre, students will be working in their sketchbooks undertaking a five or ten minute exercise.

The sketchbooks have been kindly donated by Pink Pig International and as well as filling them with the drawing exercises, children are also encouraged to use the books to help explore ideas related to the main session. Creating sketchbook content like this which is a mixture of exercises and personal study should help fuel creativity and ownership.

See all the sketchbook exercises undertaken during these sessions here.

To Begin

I chose parsnips as a subject matter which was suitable for this activity as they have a familar sculptural form and a surface containing contour lines.
