Sketchbook TO Fall 2016


For Ages 14-20

Sketchbook Toronto is an accessible portfolio development program for emerging artists. Participants will work on interdisciplinary art projects that explore both representational and abstract styles through contemporary ideas. Through mentorship, they will exercise portfolio presentation and critique skills, as well as social media self-promotion strategies for broader outreach of their talents. Workshops will offer training in synesthesia painting, printmaking, designing a large scale composition, self-deconstruction portrait, colour and design theory, storytelling and more.

Participants will develop their own sketchbooks and work on multidiscipline visual art projects that will explore and reflect their individual artistic styles using an extensive variety of supplies, mixed mediums, and tools provided.

Artwork from the class may be displayed in Arts Etobicoke’s Gallery during January and February 2017.
