Pencils, pens (your choice, but a variety of thicknesses works best)
Computer paper, thicker paper (bristol board if you have it), a sketchbook
Erasers and rulers if you want//need them. Scissors.
Good but not necessary to have a small bottle of black ink and a small paintbrush. You will be free for the most part to use any materials you prefer, so if you like pastels or watercolors, feel free to bring those to the workshop.
cardboard glue and/or stiff paper
*The only thing absolutely needed is some kind of paper and drawing utensils.
We are excited to introduce a new workshop format the the Berlin Drawing Room. The new series Sketchbook Practice will take place over the course of an entire year, starting in January. This format enables participants to embark on a deep personal journey of not only learning to draw but developing a practice that they can choose to continue or always return to over the course of a life time.
Painting on location is a practice that requires mindfulness and kindness towards ourselves. What we put on paper may not always be perfect or satisfying to our inner critic, but the time we spend in communion with the beauty before us, our eyes wide open and receptive, is an invaluable gift.
