Sketch Club

CALLing those who enjoy drawing and sketchbooks.

In this sketch club, some of us are beginners and some of us have used our skills professionally. All of us are interested in responding to our world through drawing. We are collaborative and share our skills and resources.

Our first sessions will bring everyone to a common understanding of drawing terms and approaches. No previous experience is required. Throughout the year, the group determines their interests and directions. Past and current references are explored to provide inspiration and depth to our development. Our materials are portable and inexpensive.

Materials: Bring a sketchbook and/or paper, watercolours, felt tips, pencils, pens.

WHEN: Tuesday group: 1st & 3rd Tuesday of the month
Wednesday group: 1st & 3rd Wednesday of the month (due to the holiday, dates are different for JANUARY 2020 ONLY)

TIME: 10 AM - 12 noon. We have the space from 9:30 AM to 12:30 PM so there is time to set up before and tidy afterward without compromising our sketching time. Please make every attempt to be ready to begin at 10.

Group size: max 14. Both the Tuesday and Wednesday group are full and a wait list will be kept.
