Creative Problem Solving through Sketch Booking

Date and Time: May 15 @ 1-4pm
Registration Deadline: May 14 @ 12pm

Format: In-person at GAAC (outdoor heated shelter with access to bathrooms)

Have you ever kept a sketchbook? A sketchbook is a place most of us begin our artistic journey. As kids, we often spend time drawing for fun, distracting ourselves in class, or impressing a friend. A sketchbook provides an area for both fun and problem-solving— it’s where we can make mistakes and work through an idea, experiment, and stretch our imaginations.

If you want to develop better ideas or improve a skill set, a visual journal/ sketchbook is the place to start. We’ll explore how artists create and use sketchbooks and take your practice to the next level. From drawing for fun to creating a sketchbook as a work of art in its own right, we will look at creativity, problem-solving, and the process of both improvement and satisfaction in our sketching.

Dylan Evans Weiler holds a BFA from Northern Michigan University and earned his Master of Fine Arts from Laguna College of Art and Design. His primary focus during his studies was painting. His practice includes a diverse set of media, including printmaking, the historical photographic process, sound, and installation. He brings together traditional and new media to create a more engaging experience for the audience.

Minimum Enrollment: Glen Arbor Arts Center reserves the right to cancel any class or multi-day, sequential-day workshop that does not meet its minimum student enrollment prior to the first class session. If a class is cancelled by GAAC for lack of enrollment, GAAC will offer a full refund to the student in the manner in which tuition was paid (Cash payments will be refunded by check). Please be aware that GAAC is not responsible for losses incurred due to housing, travel or other arrangements.

Requests for cancellation by the student at least seven (7) days prior to the first day of class will be honored (minus a $20 processing fee). NO REFUNDS will be given for a student cancellation made less than seven (7) days in advance of the day of the class.


To ensure the safety of our students and staff, we have implemented new procedures for our 2021 programs, to mitigate the spread of COVID and still allow participants to have a wonderful time creating art.

  • Class sizes will be limited to 10 persons or less for outdoor programs and six or less for indoor programs.
  • All students and staff must wear face coverings inside the center and outside when social distancing isn’t possible.
  • Students and staff will wash and sanitize hands frequently throughout the day.
  • Common areas and touched surfaces will be sanitized regularly.

To keep pace with the evolving conditions related to the pandemic, any new policies or procedures for classes will be communicated by June 15, 2021.
