Alright, I’m going to go out on a limb here and say that most of you artists who are either going home, to the beach, or some other place, do not feel like dragging all of your paints, brushes, and canvases to wherever you’re traveling. And I’m guessing you’re not going to be in major artist-mode this week of Spring break. And honestly, taking a break off from regular school work is fine, but taking a complete break from art is not. Now, I’m not saying that you have to create a masterpiece when you’re on vacation. Instead, make sure you use this free time to fill up your sketchbook!
While you should always be working in your sketch book, school breaks are always a great time to really fill them up. Especially if you’re doing a lot of traveling, and you wouldn’t be doing anything productive anyways, just draw in the car. If you’re spending time with family over the break, sketch some quick portraits of them! There are so many ways to keep your brain in art mode over break without having to go all out. School breaks are also a great time to be able to draw what YOU want to, since a lot of time art students can get caught up at school in different projects that have specific parameters.
So while most of your art supplies might be at school, remember that a pencil and sketchbook this spring break is a must!
