Alternative Sketchbooks Course for Teens

Ten Tuesdays, September 6 - November 8; 4-6pm

Instructor: Lauren Volk


Whether you are a serious artist or a person who just likes to doodle, a personal sketchbook can be many things. It can be a place to record your personal thoughts and artistic ideas, a medium to develop your style, or a way to learn about yourself and your world. You can use a sketchbook to experiment with different elements of design like shape, line, or color or with different media drawing, painting or collage. Anything you want! It’s all about exploring and recording and expressing yourself and discovering who you are and your personal style.

In this 10-week afterschool course, students will learn basic drawing techniques, several mixed media techniques, stenciling, hand printing and simple book making.

Lauren received her MFA from Otis College of Art and Design, Los Angeles. She has taught at Art Center College of Design, Pasadena; Otis College of Art and Design, Los Angeles; Palo Alto Art Center; and Vita Art Center, Ventura.
