Ready to get serious about keeping a drawing journal? Instructor Tim Svenonius has maintained a sketchbook practice for nearly twenty years and regards it as the bedrock of his creative process. In this workshop, Tim shares the practices and principles that help tap into a creative flow and maintain a steady drawing habit. He will show examples from his extensive sketchbook archive to demonstrate these principles at work, and will lead a series of drawing exercises that touch on key concepts. Students will be expected to draw every day in the week between the two class meetings. 

Materials to Bring: 

  • A new, blank sketch journal, hardcover recommended. If you are actively keeping a sketch journal, bring that.  
  • For the exercises, bring any tools you like to draw with, plus accessories such as erasers, and several sheets of sketch paper or scrap.

About the Instructor | Tim Svenonius

Tim Svenonius works across a range of disciplines–painting, drawing, letterpress, and book arts. An avid reader and researcher, his work explores the intersections of history, memory and myth.  In 2015 he self-published a monograph, A Book of Lost Latitudes, which reflects on the role of the whale in mythology and literature, through evocative drawings and found texts. 

Past Student Reviews:

“The concept of having rules for using a sketchbook was an eye-opener.  Tim’s delivery is engaging and his sketches are fascinating.”

“It was a really thoughtful workshop guided by deep experience and appreciation for the craft."

“It was inspiring to see Tim’s visual lexicon and hear about his process & how it developed over time. Also his clever development of self-imposed rules revealed how committed he is to his work. Very thought-provoking and visually stunning couple of hours.”
