Picasso's Bright Enticing Sketchbook- An artists daily practice, a studio tour of his mind
Every year our studio closes for 2 weeks over Christmas, but we always find ways to stay creative, connected and supportive.
This year we are taking on ’The 14 Day Drawing Challenge’!
We'd like you to join in. You can begin whenever you like over the holiday period. Choose a sketchbook or loose paper – no pressure, relax and have fun!
Why draw every day?
No one knows how to draw before they learn – don’t let that stop you! Just start drawing and don’t stop,
Time to pay attention and focus, whilst being active and engaged
Help you to 'see'
Creative problem solving and decision making
Increase confidence- don't throw it away!
You will improve
