Workshop Description:
An active sketchbook and journaling practice can enhance creative process and artistic growth. The sketchbook can be a tool to explore what is unique about your way of seeing, responding, marking, and recording experience. It can also help you test out and articulate ideas in order to move forward in an intentional, productive way with your studio practice. This workshop fosters a sketchbook practice that is low risk, non-evaluative, and exploratory. You will work with varied materials – gouache, colored brush pens, markers, water soluble pencils – and respond to a range of mark-making and writing prompts. These visual and written responses serve as a departure point for reflection on artistic goals, for generating ideas, for recognizing the idiosyncratic patterns of one’s own art making, and for further inspiration. Exercises and prompts designed to promote an ongoing sketchbook habit post-workshop will also be provided. Materials fee $40, payable to instructor at the first day of class. **See supply list of items to bring to class**

Instructor Bio:
Susan Moss has been marking on surfaces since a child: on paper table cloths, fabric, archival paper, large and small. Much of her work has focused on large-scale drawings that explore domesticity, memory, and the ordinary as recurring themes. Several years ago she took up the study of historic and contemporary textiles and began using stitch, especially hand embroidery, as a way of drawing. Her work has been exhibited regionally and nationally in over eighty venues. At Fort Lewis College (Durango, CO), she teaches all levels of drawing, contemporary textile art, and seminars focused on developing and articulating visual ideas.
