Workshop Preview: Sketchbooks


We all have them lying around. Some of us carry one wherever we go. Or if you're like me, you buy lots of them but never quite finish one! Every artist worth their paint knows that your sketchbook is the creative home. And every home can get a little cluttered or disorganized now and then. 

At the TAEA Fall Conference in Memphis this year, join Joseph B. Christy as he explores sketchbook practices that enhance your studio practices. Looking at a variety of artists and how they work, workshop participants will play with media exploration and philosophies of making, using a sketchbook as the basis for this style of playful research and discovery. Sketchbooks are where brainstorms sprout masterpieces. Many styles of working will be explored in this two-day energetic workshop. 

Joseph B. Christy is a Native Tennessean, who currently lives in the Nashville area. In addition to a degree in art from Lipscomb University, Joseph also obtained masters Degrees in Education and Painting, from Georgetown College and Marshall University, respectively. Joseph currently teaches at Woodland Middle School in Brentwood, TN., as well as private and community classes and workshops.
