Exercise for Making an Artist’s Book or Sketchbook

By Paula Briggs

Following on from our earlier session making book art, this week in our Drawing and Making Workshops for ages 6 to 10 we made an artist’s book using collage and drawing, from a single sheet of paper.  The whole session was run as an exercise, with the children guided along the process, yet with plenty of space for them to develop their own drawing style and thought processes.

The clue for this project came from a previous warm-up exercise: Making Stronger Drawings where we explored how drawing over an existing image can help inform the marks you make.
