Overview

This is a sketchbook, not an instructional manual, nor a replacement for good lesson planning. There is lots of empty spaces to fill with your drawings, sketches and artworks... sometimes though a blank sketchbook leaves you feeling just as blank.

Each right hand page has a creative idea to get you started. This is great for the student artist to build their skills and the professional artist to explore new ideas. Art teachers can cut the binding and use the sheets as hand-outs for those students who are done too early. This book has been designed so that if you use inks that bleed, you will not ruin a drawing on the back of another page.

The author is an artist and art teacher with over 20 years of experience to help students get some preliminary ideas and points of departure. Many of these concepts may spur on others ideas for larger projects. The first few pages will include information and concepts that may help you complete the sketches in this book.
