Sketchbook Saturdays

First Saturday of each month | 10am-NOON | Recommended ages 18+
Sketchbook Saturdays with Madeline Sweeney

Want to get gestural? Stop in for a Saturday morning of figure drawing at the education center! On the first Saturday of each month (unless there’s a holiday), we’ll host open studios for anyone to come and practice their figure drawing skills with a class moderator and live model.
Each session will have a famous artist theme to get us inspired by their style. Get creative and bring the materials of your choice. We’ll warm up with some fast-paced postures, and then move on to 20-30 minute postures. All skill levels are welcome.

Drop-ins welcome and pre-registration encouraged.
