Start your own Sketchbook Adventure
Endeavour Learning and Skills Centre

This course is a vibrant introduction to Sketchbook and Journal design, with a focus on methods of presenting your creative process in relation to Skills and Employability. For example this could involve a sketchbook of research for a product concept or an event visualised in an exciting way for presenting to a group, or at interview. Equally this could be an opportunity to effectively arrange photographs or drawings in ways which guide the viewer through a story, or the illustration of a diary for example. This will be particularly valuable to those who are interested in pursuing a career in the creative sector, for example in the Graphic Design industry, involving experimentation with range of materials and processes relevant to commercial opportunities.
Confidence in creative activity and communication skills will be promoted and developed through guided peer feedback sessions, and regular group discussion, and recommendations for digital applications and resources will be provided and explored to enrich your learning experience.
