The sketch group will meet every Saturday at 11:00 am. I chose this time because I thought it would still give people reasonable time to sleep in a little on Saturday, and it is not so late that it will spoil any plans you might have for the rest of the day.
The first meeting will be February 10th at Pioneer Courthouse Square, down town Portland. 11:00 am. There are so many great drawing sites in Portland. My idea is to keep the drawing locations near to the Max Line, or maybe a lot of the weeks the meeting place will be the max itself.
At the time I am posting this I am the sole member of the PDX Sketch group. I hope that will change over time and more will join. Another great artist has shown interest and I am hoping he will join.
I will open this blog to new authors as they join so they will have the opportunity to post images of their sketches on this blog to encourage themselves and others to draw. The idea was inspired by Bobby Chiu's Subway Sketches. After doing some research I have found that a lot of great artists have formed sketch clubs in the Portland Area since the late 1800's as a way to keep inspiration and a love of art alive. I hope for similar excitement with this as we all work to improve our skills.
