We launched the first Jennie Maizels’ Sketchbook Club Franchise back in January and as the weeks have gone by the participants have grown in confidence and tried as well as improved on several skills. The course is designed for anyone who thinks they can’t draw and we have converted the non believers.
We started with a basic colour wheel lesson learning the art of mixing primary colours to achieve different and new colours,
then we had some fun with letter printing to try more colour combinations.
Week 2 was the doodle lesson – a great sense of calm washed over the group as they immersed themselves in doodling!
Week 3 we moved on to painting bird using watercolours and pencils
Week 4 was fashion week and the ladies used a special transfer technique to get the images of some tremendously well dressed beauties onto our sketchbooks, we then dressed them to the nines using paint, collage and pencil crayon
In Week 5 we went intergalactic with our spacey rocket scenes using a mixture of freehand drawing, transferring from reference and then paint and crayons to finish off.
Tricks and techniques have come directly from Jennie herself and we look forward to the new inspirational topics and reference materials she provides us with each week.
You can join us for the Summer Term Sketchbook Club which will contain ten new topics!
We have an evening class starting on 19th April 2016 as well as a daytime course starting on 20th April 2016. Both will run for 10 weeks and include a break for half term week. Please check the individual course details for exact dates.
Come and join the fun!
