Mini Sketchbooks for the New Year
While exploring abstract lines and gestures, participants will use watercolour crayons to create a unique sketchbook cover that illustrates their hopes, wishes, and promises for the coming year. They will then bind the book together and begin filling the pages with their responses to the artworks on display.
