This Thursday will be part two of my Subconscious Sketchbook class, and if last week's class was any indication, it's going to be fun. Donuts were eaten, sketchbooks were started and an important point arose: it's way more important to simply do something in a sketchbook than worry about what to do.
If you want a perfect example of this approach, watch a kid draw. All kids can draw because no one has told them they can't, and from the moment they grab the pencil it's full steam ahead. Then it's on to the next drawing, without any worry or need for reference material. Of course, we can all still draw with such reckless abandon – we just have to give ourselves permission to do so. For inspiration, here are a few drawings courtesy of Harper (five) and Edie (three), daughters of one of my class members. Look and learn!
