Report on the March 2013 MCBA Visual Journal Collective Meeting—Digital Sketching with James Nutt

March 21, 2013

Briana Goetzen over on her blog Orange Spiral Arts has written a great wrap up of Monday's meeting, including photos (none of mine turned out!). Please pop over to Briana's blog and check out her post. (Thank you Briana!)

Despite the cold temps and threatened snow increase (we had the cold but not much new snow) a large group gathered to hear James Nutt talk about digital sketching on the iPad. It was a dangerous meeting to attend—there are multiple undos in these sketch apps, and layers. A lot of sophistication!

(Here's a fun post on James' blog showing the digital drawing, in steps, he made of the White Bear Center for the Arts.)

It was great fun and we all learned what to look for in sketching apps.

After James' talk we did some journal sharing and people turned in their pages for our Not-So-Blank-Page Journal Collaboration—you'll hear more about that in the coming months.

Once again we proved that there is a lot of fun to be had in Minnesota in the winter, even when the winter is actually in the spring.

Join us on Monday, April 15 when Suzanne Hughes and I talk about travel journaling and show some of our travel journals. (At MCBA from 7 to 9 p.m. as usual.) Maybe we won't have snow by then?
