Ok, so it's been a while since we've posted a blog post BUT since the start of this year things have been HECTIC. I mean like, super-crazy-what day is it-where am I-hectic. So, we do apologise.
In case you somehow haven't seen, we've started an online workshop! Well, it's kind of a workshop. It's called Sketchbook Club Online and it's based on the sketchbook club workshops we are currently running with the Bristol Young People's Charity Off The Record. In those workshops we provide sketchbooks and materials and encourage our attendees to just sketch along to a theme and we all have a good chat.
We've had a lot of positive feedback to these sessions, our attendees seem to really enjoy a session at OTR that isn't quite counselling, but it's still expressing yourself in a safe space, and with a group of people that are willing to listen to you.
So we wanted a way to bring sketchbook club to EVERYONE and this seemed like an impossible feat given that so many of you ghosties aren't from the UK (where we're based). Using the internet seemed to be the best option so we thought this would be a good time to start utilising YOUTUBE. Now, youtube is a pretty scary concept, we're all kind of nervous people and the idea of being on camera so much was a bit daunting, but I think we're just about getting the hang of it.
The idea with these videos is to grab some pens and some paper and sketch a long with us, we're currently on episode 7 and we've had some great guests and covered a lot of important art-based topics. We'd love for you to join us and sketch along and we'd love even more to see what you're sketching, so tag us on instagram or twitter if you've made anything whilst watching.
Oh and also we moved studios! And we vlogged the whole thing (see, pretty good at this youtube thing eh?) but that took up quite a lot of our time.
So far 2017 has been HECTIC but good, we're starting a lot of projects we've been wanting to do for a while, thanks for sticking with us and we appreciate ALL feedback about these videos as we're new to this... So please, let us know your thoughts!
Thanks so much ghosties, u rule xx
