Miramichi Valley High School art teacher Theresa MacKnight offered one day enrichment workshops on the Art of the Sketchbook to 4 groups of students throughout the district in mid-March. Students received their own artist-quality sketchbook and spent the day exploring new materials and techniques. They learned how artists such as Leonardo Da Vinci, as well as contemporary artists, have used sketchbooks in their artistic lives. The students had a rewarding experience meeting new, like-minded peers and exploring ways to expand their own creative instincts.
