So, I thought it would be fun to start a “sketch club” (kind of like a book club).  I found a great book that outlines a series of sketching lessons appropriate for all levels.  The exercises help coordinate hand/eye trust and foster creative thinking, and sound fairly rigorous.  Image

The Drawing Projects:  An Exploration of the Language of Drawing by Mick Maslen and Jack Southern.

Starting Tuesday, June 25th I will open the gallery to anyone who would like to stop by and work on a sketch.  I will try to post the  supplies you will need for each lesson ahead of time (or you can email me if I forget).  Usually it is just paper and graphite/pencils.  If you can find a copy of the book, I highly recommend it.  If you can’t, you can borrow mine for notes.

I’m definitely not teaching the class–I will also be learning as I go along.  The lessons seem fairly stand alone, so you can just come to whatever night you are able.

I’ll try to have a dessert/beverage available (if we end up with a steady group, maybe we can take turns bringing snacks).

If you are interested in finding out more or participating, just send me a quick email so I have an idea of how many people might stop by.

I’m really excited about trying out these projects with a group, and I hope that some of you are able to join me!
