Developing a Sketchbook: Visual Thinking

The sketch­book is per­haps the most all-encom­pass­ing tool estab­lished across the dis­ci­plines of art, craft, and design. By not­ing an event, an idea, or a dia­gram in a sketch­book, the artist saves that mem­o­ry to work with when back in the stu­dio. Stu­dents will dis­cov­er a vari­ety of ideas and meth­ods of sketch­book prac­tice, along with the prac­ti­cal appli­ca­tion of meth­ods and mate­ri­als. This includes choos­ing suit­able sup­ports and medi­ums, and gath­er­ing and record­ing infor­ma­tion. The course pro­vides instruc­tion, sug­ges­tions, and infor­ma­tion on the use of a vari­ety of dif­fer­ent media and on the addi­tion of pho­tographs, found objects, and mixed media with­in sketchbooks.
