This fall Winfield Public Library’s The Traveling Sketchbook invites you to find new inspiration in an old photo. Start your artwork off with a photograph, pattern, or cut out magazine image and create a new artwork from that base.
Local cartoonists, collage novices, mixed media specialists, dabblers, doodlers and artists of all (even no) experience levels can check out Sketchbook kits for one week. Kits include the new prompt and tools such as watercolor pencils, a brush, pens and paper.
The Traveling Sketchbook is a community art project that invites artists of all abilities to explore their creativity. The art created can be silly, serious, somewhere in between, signed or left anonymous. All sketches/inclusions must be G-rated so that all members of the community, regardless of age, can enjoy them. A selection of The Traveling Sketchbook artwork is on display throughout the library.
WPL’s The Traveling Sketchbook is made possible by a Libraries Transforming Communities: Focus on Small and Rural Libraries grant, an initiative of the American Library Association (ALA) in collaboration with the Association for Rural and Small Libraries (ARSL).
