Always passionately in pursuit of art even from a young age, artist Laura Wattles graduated from Missouri State University with a major in Graphic Design with an emphasis in Illustration. Since then, Wattles has worked steadily as a graphic designer while also keeping in touch with her artistic practices such as dollmaking and watercolor painting. She has spent the last 10 years incorporating looseness, life, and even ‘play’ into her art through a sketchbook practice.

In RAM Sketch, Wattles will emphasize and encourage sketchbook drawing as a creative habit, with focus on these four ideas: DAILY (draw every day); EXPERIMENT (try different things); FEARLESS (don’t be afraid to mess up); and FUN (have fun doing it).

Students can either stick to the basics or for the more advanced sketcher, you can put your own creative spin into it. End-of-class show-and-tell will allow artists to engage, critique, and improve community fostering. So, grab your sketchbook and pencil and experience both the improved wellness and artist community of a consistent drawing practice!
