High School Sketchbook

Price: $145 (Members: $130)


The sketchbook can be one of the artist’s most important tools. Learn how to bind and make your own sketchbook and use it as a place to explore different mediums, learn a variety of techniques, create color palettes, explore patterns, and keep a collection of things that inspire you. Work with a teaching artist to develop your observational drawing skills and learn to use a variety of drawing tools. Spend a week drawing on location in the museum’s galleries and exhibitions as well as outdoors in Oakland. Build up your sketchbook with a variety of quick studies and more finished compositions while drawing landscapes, architecture, and portraits from observation. This workshop meets on Carnegie Mellon’s campus. Students will make regular walking trips to Carnegie Museum of Art.

Last day to register is July 8, 2020.
