Wet Paint Weekly Workouts- Your First Assignment

Leave a comment

Join us in a 12-week creative activity group where we explore techniques and mediums together in a Weekly Workout! All ages and levels of experience are welcome. Each Wednesday a new “workout” will be posted here that details a project for you to try and a materials list to reference. Each week as you complete the exercises, we hope you’ll post a picture of your finished workout for all to see. You can also take a look at what other folks have done and leave comments in a general forum. Grab your favorite sketchbook and let’s get to (art)work!

Posting Policies:
-Please post one image per week (so we can see everyone’s work)
-Comments should be constructive and encouraging (this is an all-ages/levels group)
-We have the right to remove any abusive language or unrelated imagery (we love your cat photos, but keep that to your own page, please)


Can you guess who our photo bomber is in the background?

Your first assignment: select a sketchbook to use for your Workbook! We suggest getting a multi-media-friendly book to hold up to the variety of materials you will be using. Next, make it your own (like Liz did by embellishing the cover with pretty paper!)- nothing too fancy, just make it something you want to use. And, be sure to keep it accessible for when creativity strikes! Feel free to post pictures of your personalized Workbooks.

We’ve got plenty of great sketchbooks to choose from at Wet Paint. For a limited time (2/19 thru 2/28) you can find several of our favorites for 20% off: the AquaBee Super Deluxe 808 in 9”x12”, the AquaBee Big Yellow Bee Co-Mo sketch in 9”x9” and Strathmore’s Visual Journal with Mixed Media surface in 9”x12”.
