On-line Art Classes - How to Keep a Sketchbook

Firstly, a sketchbook is a private space where you are free to experiment, try out new techniques, develop your ideas and work through emotions (especially during uncertain times). A sketchbook can also be a work of art in itself showing the immediacy of the artist’s original ideas in a way that the final work does not. 


Our students often struggle to start a sketchbook and keep it going, becoming bogged down with producing perfect drawings. In this hour long class, professional artist Nick Malone help you develop your creativity, giving advice on:


  • choosing the perfect sketchbook for your way of working
  • materials and mediums which lend themselves particularly well to use in a sketchbook 
  • exercises to help you see in a different way and experiment to develop your creativity
  • ways to incorporate found images, text and poetry. 


He will also show a range of famous artists’ sketchbooks for inspiration and answer all your questions. 


Beginner to painting are really welcome but the class is also suitable for those with a little more experience. 


Nick is passionate about promoting good art practice, which he sees as vital to his role as a professional artist. He established London Art Classes in 2005 and has 15 year of extensive experience in developing creativity in beginners and more experienced artists. 


This on-line class is designed so that you can use what you have learned independently at your own pace after the session. As such, no materials or equipment are needed to take part in the class. You will be emailed notes from the class after the session to help you with this.


The classes take place on Zoom at 7pm to 8pm on Tuesday evenings and 2pm to 3pm on Sundays. Each class costs £15 per person.
