Sketchbook Revival!

Posted by Koosje Koene in sketchbook on April 21, 2019

Sometimes we need a little push to get our sketchbook practice moving.

I know I do! I change my gear, my sketchbook, the medium I work with or on… and I look at other people’s art for inspiration.
A year ago, Karen Abend hosted the free online event “Sketchbook Revival”. She invited me teach a session in the event, and it was so much fun! And this year, she’s doing it again! And I am one of the many artists she invited to do a session during the event. I’ll be starting a portrait party during my session – one that’s suitable for beginners and more advanced – and you can follow along and make your own drawing with me!

So: is your sketchbook practice in need of a little revival? Let’s freshen it up together at the Sketchbook Revival Online Workshop. It’s filled with techniques, ideas, and tips to give you the inspiration, momentum and empowerment you’ve been craving. I am not even sure when exactly it will start but it WILL be later this month – might even be in just a couple of days…
Come and meet me there

Hi I'm Koosje. I'm an illustrator and art teacher in Amsterdam, where I was born and raised. I went to school to study graphic design, then worked for ten years as an award-winning professional photographer. But eventually my love of drawing and painting took over and I became an illustrator. My illustrations have been published in many Dutch magazines and in 2011, I began blogging and started developing and teaching online art classes. In 2014 I founded Sketchbook Skool, which is a flourishing community of artists from around the world of all skill levels.
