Make a Sketchbook, Ideas Book or Travel Journal this Summer!

By Sheila Ceccarelli

We've had a wonderful few weeks running insets and workshops in schools and summer is definitely in the air!

This week teachers at Garden Fields JMC, St Albans worked with AccessArt exploring the potential of sketchbooks as personalised learning tools and teenagers from AccessArt's Experimental Drawing Class worked during their final session this term, on making their own books for summer ideas (and delightfully their parents joined in at the end of the session and made their own books too).

AccessArt would like to encourage you to be inspired and have a go. These sketchbooks were all 'rough and ready' and did not depend on great book making skills or even much time to achieve fun and highly personalised results.
