Chronicles 2013 - Finding your Art

(Libby Kyer, April 8, 2013)
We are starting the second week of April and the 15th page in the 2013 SBAI Chronicles was just completed, and the first Chronicle page was completed in February. Because not all of our illustrators and artists are connected to Facebook, I will periodically report the progress to let you know about the incredible pages produced. Please click here to see the progress.

From today's page about Sketching - Finding your Art: A good sketch is as much about the artist as it is about the art. It is a constant negotiation between what you see and what you think you want to see: between what you need to represent to anchor the work and what you need to represent to access your own take on the spirit of the work; what must be represented and what may be inferred. Let your sketches grow as you grow - and take joy in your process.

All who have had Libby Kyer as a teacher know that you should sketch at least 10 minutes every day. We all know how beneficial that is for our artistic development.
