(You can use the sketchbook from the materials kit, Canson 180 Degree Hardbound Sketchbook 80 sheets, 65lb, 8.3″- 11.7″ and/or any other you choose.)

Sketchbook guidance and references: You should work in your sketchbook as often as you like and create as many pages as you are inspired to.  Of course the more you work in it, the more you’ll want to so you might just find yourself opening it up every single day to add a little something to the pages here and there.  There’s no rule that says you have to work in just one book at a time so you might want to mix it up a bit and have several different ones going at once.  Maybe one for wet media such as acrylic and watercolors, one for pen and ink and one for collage. Feel free to have separate pages that you can just stick into the sketchbook.They need not be finished drawings but rather “sketched out” versions.

Suggestions: You can work in any medium that you like – paint, watercolor, pen & ink, charcoal, collage, marker, crayon or something else.  Use this as an opportunity to explore a medium that you’ve never tried.   Your sketchbook should be a reflection of you and you should feel free to explore and work in any mediums that you want. Write anything you want as well. Think about designing the outside to make it your own. You may be inspired to make your own book from scratch. Carry it with you to use it as you would a camera, to capture inspirational moments or gather objects to place inside.
