PAINTING & DRAWING
Locals’ Sketch Club
Anderson Ranch Arts Center’s Painting & Drawing department invites you to join our Sketch Club. The group meets once per month to draw from a still life, landscape or from source materials like personal photographs. We focus on basic drawing concerns including composition, line, value and subject matter while having fun honing our skills and creating original drawings. Some basic drawing materials are provided such as graphite, charcoal, and newsprint. However, participants may bring whatever materials they like including pastels, watercolor/ink, collage materials and any other tools with which they choose to draw. Enjoy the Ranch setting and getting your hands dirty while broadening your drawing experience. All skill levels are welcome.
We will meet on the first Tuesday of each month from 3-5PM in the Maloof Wood Loft on the following dates (click on date for more information):
Please contact Lauren Peterson, Studio Coordinator of Painting, Drawing and Printmaking, to RSVP and get more information at firstname.lastname@example.org
