This course explores how the personal nature of an artist's sketchbook can assist in the development of new directions and reveal meaningful ideas to pursue. Students develop sketches, collages, paintings, and notes to be used to create works on larger sheets of paper. Students review the history of artist's sketchbooks and visit virtual collections, including the Art Institute of Chicago, for sketching inspiration. During one class session, handmade sketchbooks are made using an array of book construction methods. Experimentation with a wide variety of drawing materials is encouraged.
