We'll meet at the Roast Coffee and Tea Trading Company at 7. Bring whatever you did over the Thanksgiving Holiday as your Thanksgiving Challenge.
If you would like to learn some other journaling sketchbook techniques, make sure to bring along your watercolors, a sketchbook that you would like to work in, a permanent (waterproof) glue stick and some magazines or other things that you would like to glue into your book and a pair of scissors.

Since this is Thanksgiving week, I expect that many folks will be busy Wednesday....however, if you are around and you are up to an evening latte or decaf cappuccino, come on over to the Roast Coffee and Tea Trading Company on Main Street....it will be a very informal gathering, just coffee and a sketch and maybe one of those nice fat cupcakes.
For those who, understandably, cannot make it but want an excuse to sketch, I am issuing a Thanksgiving Challenge. Between Wednesday and Sunday, get out and sketch anything related to the holiday, the time of year, autumn or anything else related to the holiday. Even your meal, that nice fat turkey on the table with all the trimmings, a pie slice, do anything and send it to JLento@optonline.net, put THANKSGIVING CHALLENGE in the subject line, and I will post them on our blog all next week.
Happy Thanksgiving to everyone and enjoy your Holiday!!!

Due to the days getting shorter and the outdoors getting chilly, this Wednesday's sketch will be held at a members home using a still life, as a change of pace.
Anyone interested in attending, please contact Gina @ JLento@optonline.net for location and directions.
