The Sketch Club is an art group that is guided by facilitators and led by peers to enrich the members’ experience and knowledge of art and drawing. We explore various aspects of art through compositional analysis, constructive feedback, concentrated practice, examination of renowned artists’ work and discussions of local art developments and events.
The main objectives are to sharpen our ways of “seeing” the world around us, and through practice take our present sketching and mark making skills to the next level. Ultimately our sketches can serve as a visual diary of our travel experiences, a scrapbook of references for future drawings or paintings.
We meet for the winter months on Zoom January–February, at cSpace and on Zoom March–June. Over the summer months, weather permitting we meet for plein air outings at city parks.
Sketchbook and/or paper, watercolours, felt tips, pencils, pens – the materials that are comfortable to carry around.
The Sketch Club Forum is private web forum for Sketch Club Members to post photos of our work. Note: Members need to be logged-in to be able to open this page.

Maria Seiler-Huizing – Maria has been drawing since early childhood and works in various media to record her favourite subjects: rural and urban landscapes and the figurative. Along with her Teaching and Fine Art backgrounds she exhibits her work with CCPS, CRTA and Passionate Painters.
Brenda Pfleger – Brenda has been drawing for as long as she can remember. After a career in the graphic design/production art/typesetting business, she's going back to the basics and re-experiencing the joy and frustration of sketching.
