Now in our 7th year!

 

"Character Sketches" is an adult art program for anyone who likes to sketch, draw, or paint. All skill levels are welcome. High school aged participants are welcome to attend. There is no "teacher." Just come and practice. One thing we constantly hear from new participants is, "Gee. I wish I could draw like that." The answer from the "seasoned" participants is, "Practice. Practice. Practice."

Though subject to change, the tentative calendar for 2024 is on on the right.
