ABOUT SKETCHPACK PROJECT: The project began in 2011 to get folks to draw daily.
The sketchpack is a small zigzag journal with two usable sides, allowing one to sketch on both sides of 15 ‘pages’ to complete the month of August. There was much enthusiasm and the project is now repeated yearly in August, with a Facebook page for us to share as we go along.
(The page is closed for viewing but you can join to play along!)
There is an Exhibition held in October at the Artsauce Studio in
Observatory,
Cape Town, South Africa of mostly local Sketchpacks!

    I wrote down the supply list you gave me last week, Katie, and will be heading to the store this week. You are such an inspiration! I am so excited to pick up the old high school art class memories. This post is beautiful.

    Question for you: the watercolors you use are not ‘watercolors’ per se, but tubes of watercolor paint? I did look online and, of course, so different than the watercolors Michael’s sells. Checking with you first…..Thanks, Katie.
