Developing Sketchbook Skills & Approaches is an online course which consists of 4 modules/assignments.

The course aims to give adults and teenagers the opportunity to develop their understanding of what a sketchbook might be and how it can help feed your creativity, via a series of four “assignments” designed to inspire and enable.

The assignments will explore many aspects of working in a sketchbook, including making sketchbooks, sketching, collage, collecting, intention and reflection. The course is suitable for complete novices and also for more experienced artists. In addition to the assignments, participants will benefit from sharing their experience and outcomes with their peers via online discussion.

Who is Developing Developing Skills & Approaches aimed at?

This online course is aimed at:

  • adults who have little or no experience of sketchbooks, who would like to be introduced to basic skills and ideas;
  • adults who would like to revisit sketchbooks and benefit from new ideas and impetus;
  • adults who would benefit from feedback about their work;
  • adults who find it hard to attend physical courses;
  • teachers who would like to develop their skills: the exercises are transferable and can be adapted to a wide audience. By trying the exercises yourself you will develop a greater understanding of the processes involved;
  • teenagers who are studying and would like to support their school work.
Participants are welcome from across the world (pls find a link to a currency converter at the end of this page).

How does it Work?

Once you have signed up and paid your course fee, you will be given access to all course material online.

You will log in with your username and password, enjoy the module and then try the activity in your own time. We encourage you to scan or photograph your work and upload it to the site via an easy upload facility** so that you can share your work with other students. Peer to peer comments are encouraged, and AccessArt artists/tutors will also support you in constructive ways. We would encourage you to comment on your own experience of the exercise when you upload your images and to comment on other students work if you feel inclined.

**You can upload up to 2 images for each module. AccessArt tutors will give brief but constructive feedback upon one image per module, per person.

***We may share uploaded images and include your first name on our social media sites.  Please let us know if you would prefer not to have your work posted on Pinterest, Face Book etc.

Preparation

As the learning is delivered remotely you will of course be responsible for any materials. Information will be provided to help you collect the necessary materials – these materials will not be overly complicated, just basic drawing materials (paper, pencils, charcoal etc), paper (plain and scrap) and are easily obtainable online or in art shops.

How much time will I need to commit?

It’s largely up to you, and obviously the more you put in, the more you will get out. We suggest you try to spend at least two hours on each of the assignments – though we know many people will want to spend longer on the exercises.
