Sketchbook Process with Kristin Texeira

Kristin Texeira paints to provide proof—for myself and others—of existing in certain moments in time. “I paint to capture, document, and preserve memories. I translate the essence of moments through color by mixing up the poetics of people and places. I retell stories through various methods of mark-making using paint, collage, sketching and writing. This process preserves memories as tangible "maps." I often juxtapose these memory maps with short captions that form the foundation for the colors I mix.”

In this workshop Kristen provides guidance, tips and encouragement toward filling a sketchbook. Learn to stay motivated and keep up a regular sketching practice to develop your personal artistic voice. Pens and pencils provided. All participants will get 30% off sketchbooks to contribute to the Brooklyn Art Library.
