In conjunction with Handmade & Bound Nashville, 3rd ed., the Library at Watkins and Watkins Community Education host Sketchbook Collective, a community celebration of the individually-made book. Sketchbooks, defined as a bound set of blank pages often used for spontaneous, quick drawings, doodles or notes, have long functioned as a way for artists to ignite their creativity and store innovative ideas. Discover your hidden artist and ignite your creativity through a series of sketchbook creation workshops held by Watkins Community Education in partnership with local community organizations. During Handmade & Bound Nashville, local artists’ sketchbooks and books created by community members through the Sketchbook Collective will be on display in the Brownlee O. Currey, Jr. Gallery at Watkins College of Art, Design & Film, 2298 Rosa L. Parks Boulevard, Nashville, Tennessee, 37228. The show opens October 4 and runs through October 14.
The Sketchbook Collective is funded in part by a MetroArts ArtsAccess Grant.
