Sketch Club

CALLing those who enjoy drawing and sketchbooks.

Some of us are beginners. Some of us have used our skills professionally. All of us are interested in responding to our world through drawing. The first 6 sessions of the fall, beginning in October 1, bring everyone to a common understanding of drawing terms and approaches. No previous experience is required. Throughout the winter the group determines their interests and develop techniques and skills with various materials. Past and current trends are explored as they provide inspiration and depth to our own development. We take turns sharing our skills, developing partnerships and see each other as resources for further learning and collaboration.

Materials: Bring a sketchbook and portable materials such as a paper or a sketchbook, watercolour, felt tips, pencils, pen to the first session. We add materials later, as we define our areas of interest.

The official time for the sessions (10 AM - noon) is the time we expect to use for sketching. 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.
