Online - The Sketchbook
Why should you have and use a sketchbook? A sketchbook is more than just a notebook for drawing. A sketchbook is a way to process raw information, it is also a place to express oneself privately, document the world that surrounds us, experiment, record ideas, memories, observations.
This workshop is designed to help students looking to tune-up their sketchbooks, or for beginners looking to explore into the world of sketchbooking for the first time.
In this workshop, we will learn why a sketchbook is essential, why it gives us insight into our thought process, and therefore, an insight into us as persons, why it is a tool of communication, why it enriches and strengthens the creative process, plus more.
We will also learn about types of sketchbooks, sizes, materials, and tools.

About the Instructor
Maurice Casas’ art is a result of several years of experimentation and a search for identity. It is the fusion of these two disciplines plus his personal sensitivity that have given him a new vision for color and design. His work creates an environment of invented realms and is juxtaposed between past and present. He uses semi-abstract and figurative mark-making to create tension between reality and fanciful. Using Pre-Columbian Art and Iconography and elements of Architecture, Maurice has developed a unique and colorful language with its own vocabulary. Originally from Colombia in South America, Maurice has attended Colegio Antonio Narino and New York City Technical College. He has lived in the United States for 35 years where he has worked as a Visual Artist and Architectural Designer.
