Summer of Sketches | 2017

Looking for some creative inspiration to get you through the summer? Join Jamie Waters, Nancy Damiano, and Kelly Noel, as well as their team of talented contributors for a revamp of last year's popular class featuring a summer-long session of “round robin” sketch inspiration. From May to July, each week will bring you a new lesson bursting with fresh sketches that provide the ultimate starting point for any story you want to tell. Every Monday students will have access to a new video and layout from one of the instructors, two additional layouts from contributors, and four all new sketches. That's a total of 48 sketches over 12 weeks! By the end of class, you’ll have access to a treasure trove of inspiration, ready for any time you need a little creative boost! Summer of Sketches starts May 15th.
