How do you start a page in your sketchbook when you don’t know what to draw, or feel unmotivated? (or both!) See a drawing demo which provides several prompts for how to get your creative juices flowing. Contrary to the sketchbooks you see on Instagram, real artist sketchbooks are a mess, full of scraps of ideas, crummy looking doodles and drawings, and are rarely finished. Demo led by Art Prof Clara Lieu and Teaching Artist Cat Huang.
- Prompt 1: Draw vertical lines, using marks as diverse as possible. Switch to horizontal lines
- Prompt 2: Draw what is right in front of you
- Prompt 3: Draw from our free reference photo collection on Flickr
- Prompt 4: Draw from an art book, or any book with visuals
