Sketching Outdoors

Sketching outdoors ( inside in the winter) in pleasant surroundings in good company  is a great way to spend a Sunday morning, followed by lunch with like minded people. It’s good for the soul, good for the mind, good for the practice of art and extremely low cost. You will meet some interesting people and see some different ways of interpreting things which might lead you in a whole new direction.

Sketching Together plus lunch held monthly on a Sunday morning at 10:00am (usually the last Sunday of the month).

BYO art materials, stool, coat, hat, and picnic lunch or money to purchase lunch depending on where we go.

Non-members are welcome.

Cost is a gold coin donation.

New locations will be added closer to each date.
