CAPI Art Portfolio Sketchbooks to Gather

CAPI Art Portfolio Sketchbooks,Organising  Art Portfolios and Sketchbooks for Visual Inspiration, Art Research , Sketchbook Assignments and as Gathering Vessels for our Journey

Create Art Portfolio Ideas - designed to explore one's unique art style, find the little art style elements that make our artwork uniquely personal. What is an artist's unique signature ? How do we find ourselves drawn to particular artists sometimes without even knowing quite why ? Lets take a look at the methods behind our artful madness , decipher the patterns that govern our subconsious and find new ways to let our art supplies be at ease with the muse's demands for originality.

CAPI Art Portfolio Sketchbooks to Gather

Welcome to CAPI -- here a list of all the different types pf sketchbooks , art portfolios, folders and journals we are going to get inspired with 

Why so many , you might ask ?

  • sorting, sifting, eliminating, gathering, identifying, reducing, fine tuning, exploring, developing, analysing, pin-pointing, singling out that which makes us unique .. our personal patterns, art styles and recognisable traits
  • we are intending to dig deep into what makes our art heart unique and deeply personal
  • sometimes it can be hard to identify at first, I certainly find myself overwhelmed with too many ideas all crammed in my " One fits all" sketchbook, with no cohesive means of finding a starting point without being distracted 
  • I like to try a different approach of " Creating Art Portfolio Ideas " Sketchbooks that are already pre-sorted in some way, easily accessible when the muse strikes .. 
  • None of these journals and sketchbooks need to be high quality , indeed it does not matter at all. I will be using a mixture of filefolders, composition journals, school folders and cheap sketchbooks in about A$ size to leave room for adding pages, sorting , sifting, taking away etc . 
  • If you would like to walk with me ... then here it begins ... 

Start with ...

  • reading all about the various types of sketchbooks below
  • following the links to the printables for each sketchbook and port folio
  • printing out the labels you like and get ready 6 Sketchbook Portfolios as indicated 
  • understanding that these are not meant to be expensive or elaborate whatever suits your style and budget is just fine
  • proceed to the first Journaling Prompt Assignment below and start adding it to your new  " CAPI Pondering Journal "
  • enjoying yourself on your first step on this journey :-) 

"CAPI - Raw Sketchbook"
CAPI Art Portfolio Sketchbooks Types for CAPI

  • The "CAPI Raw Sketchbook" will be your be your " Go to Book" filled with everything that  the muse throws at you , ideas, thoughts, sketches, glimpses, studies, poems, drawings, collage images, textures, photographs

What is a Sketchbook ? Opinions vary as to what exactly is a sketchbook and I always prefer the term Raw Sketchbook, a place for the process , the sporadic ideas, the on the road inspirations rather than fully fleshed out paintings in art journal pages. Preliminary sketches from developing a new painting, warm up sketching to give the muse some practice, note sketches to remember a fleeting idea are all welcome in my raw sketchbooks . These are not meant to be " finished pages" like in art journals or various other types of sketchbooks art journalers keep but rather process journals that invite me to continue to add new sketches, new drawings, glue in little snippets of inspiration to keep a record of my process.

"CAPI Gathering Portfolio"

  • The "CAPI Gathering Portfolio" will play host to all your visual images you come across that carry some kind of resonance to you, to not at this point ask, why do they resonate, do not sort them, do not do anything other than randomly stick onto the first page available
  • it will also contain images gathered in response to my  CAPI - Photo Prompts throughout our journey
  • look for images in magazines, brochures, art books, the web, junk mail, catalogues, cards, stationary etc .. if you cannot cut out an image, then take a photo of it , then add it to your Gathering Portfolio
  • do not descriminate any further ..simply stick with the first feeling of " hmm I quite like that " ..which will qualify for an image to be added to your "CAPI Gathering Portfolio"
  • the object of the Gathering Portfolio is to eventually be able to spot patterns, find elements that recurr again and again and help define your personal resonant art style
