SKETCHATHON Is COMING!

Join Us For Our Very Favorite Winter Sketching Event on Saturday, Feb 17th from 8am-8pm for TWELVE HOURS of sketching to support a great cause!

The Slow River Community will be in our studio sketching from 8am until 8pm – – learning, laughing and creating together the whole time! Over the course of the day, we will fill our gallery with tiny works of art that will be on sale for the whole month of February.

Sketchers of all levels are welcome to join us! Total beginners will enjoy encouragement, free sketching lessons and fun art prompts throughout the day. More experienced sketchers will enjoy meeting people who share their passion and the chance to be inspired by new styles. Come on your own or gather up a group. You can join us for a few hours or the whole day. We plan to make this a memorable day, so bring energy and excitement to share!

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Do I have to sketch for all twelve hours?
No. We would love to have you sketch for the whole time, but we are signing people up in three hour shifts. You can also just drop by to do a quick sketch! Please RSVP below so we know how many people to expect.

Will we just be quietly sketching the whole time?
No! We will be sketching, but it won’t be quiet. We will have music, conversations, sketching lessons, silly hats and maybe even some singalongs!

Will there be prizes for good sketches?
No. We expect a wonderful variety of sketching styles to emerge at this event and we believe dividing art up into categories will squelch our collective creativity. It’s all good!

What supplies do I need to bring?
We will have pre-cut paper in three special sizes. Bring your favorite sketching or drawing supplies. We will also have lots of stuff to sketch with if you don’t have favorite supplies yet!

Are teens welcome?
Yes! Teenagers are welcome to join us for some or all of the day. Younger children are welcome to sketch with a parent or attentive adult. Please note: this is not a drop-off event for children.

Should We Bring Snacks?
Yes! We will supply snacks throughout the day to keep us all fueled for sketching, but potluck snack donations are also welcome!

I don’t want to sketch, but can I come buy some artwork?
Yes! Stop by anytime on Saturday or later in the month to purchase sketches. We will have some fantastic stuff for sale for very low prices!

I can’t make it on Saturday, can I still submit some sketches for the sale?
Yes! You can sketch on your own and donate your sketches to the show. Just drop them off at the studio. We are open during class hours.
