Sketch, journal & walk St Ives. Support Oxfam local & international with an artist tutorial outdoors in Cornwall.

Artis led workshops in St Ives & Penzance.
I have been keeping sketchbooks for a long time now. From sketching the reconstruction of Berlin to drawing the locals in Oxford, I have recorded my surroundings for more than two decades.

Sketching on St Ives Island Cornwall. All students on our tours are given a good start with a  Seawhites of Brighton Artist sketchbook to keep, purchased from St Ives Oxfam.
Keeping a record of your day, be it a still life sketching at breakfast or a watercolour sketch on a beach in Thailand, it is a good practice to keep up. If you cant afford a decent sketchbook then get inventive.
Paint pages of an old book, charity shops are a good place to start & sometimes you can ask if they can save unsaleable books for you to repurpose. Re use paper or card by painting a ground to work on, keep all envelopes from your post - they have a blank side & an interesting patterned side.
Find a tutorial online on book binding and stitch all your found papers together.
