Keeping A Daily Sketchbook

I started an online class this week with Cat Bennett, hosted by Carla Sonheim called, “Sketchbooks: Making Art A Practice.”  You can find out more about it here.  It is a six-week course.

I started keeping a daily art journal this year but then felt stuck so I haven’t kept one up.  So far, I am really enjoying the class and I’m creating in my sketchbook each day!  YAY!

I thought you may enjoy seeing some of my pages.

I’m enjoying the process of making marks without trying to create a finished product.

Do you have a favorite?  I’d love to hear from you!

Happy Creating!  🙂
