Time to sketchbook

with artist and speech therapist Cat Andrew

19 Jan 2021 17:00 - 18:00



Join this online workshop for RCN members in how to build a regular drawing practice, led by Cat Andrew.

This workshop will help you build your own drawing practice through different creative exercises and sketchbooking.

We will look at different ways of using a sketchbook, whether to record what we see, develop ideas or keep a visual journal. We will look at how to fit drawing into your life when you feel like you have no time. The workshop will be suitable for absolute beginners, but also for those who have started drawing and would like to develop a regular drawing practice.

This is the first of three workshops taking place in January, February and March 2021. You may attend a workshop as a stand alone session, or we encourage you to attend all three to help develop your drawing.

We will be drawing during the session, so please bring a pencil and paper. Any extra materials you have will be useful too. We will discuss what kind of sketchbook to use and materials that would be useful in a basic drawing kit. The session will be led by Cat Andrew, artist, illustrator and speech and language therapist. She has extensive experience in teaching drawing as therapy and has been running drawing classes for people with aphasia since 2013.
