A finished sketchbook feel great because you possess a valuable resource to flip through for reference, track your progress, and save good ideaS. Getting started may be intimidating. Artists often hesitate with thoughts like: “What if I ruin my nice book?” But we say: “Inconceivable!” and we are here to help.

Artelier is hosting 3-hour sketching sessions once a month on Wednesday evenings. Each night features a different subject matter and new materials. Kim will provide loads of encouragement and fun exercises to help you improve observation and drawing skills while discovering your unique style. You will enjoy the confidence boost that comes from making a little time for your art practice.

Join anytime. Simply pick the night(s) you can come. It doesn’t matter where you start only that you start. Homework will be encouraged for the keeners 😊.
