Using Sketchbooks Creatively in Art, Craft & Design
DateFri, 16th November, 2018
Time9:30 am - 3:30 pm
LocationSt William’s Primary School, William’s Loke, Norwich
The national curriculum states that in the subject of art, craft and design, children should create sketch books to record their observations and use them to review and revisit ideas. The sketchbook or journal is central to being an artist, it allows exploration, recording, experimentation to take place. The sketchbook is not the same as an exercise book and should look different, feel different and be different. It is often where the seeds of creativity are planted.
This inspirational, one day course is a mixture of theory and ‘hands on’ and will:
• show you the historical and contemporary role of the sketchbook.
• look at artists, designers and makers and how they use the sketchbook.
• introduce you, through very practical workshops, to making your very own books and “zines”
• let you explore techniques and processes which can be taken straight back to the classroom.
• share and discuss how we currently use these books
• explore ways of moving forward with sketchbooks at school
• consider ways to encourage your colleagues to get on board with new ideas and ways of working
• stimulate your thinking and making skills
• inspire you to think ‘outside the box’.
£160.00 for 1 and £300 for 2 places
