Wednesday Sketch Night December 15th at 7 PM

Sorry for the last minute post. It's the holidays. Everyone is busy with their holiday activities.

If you are looking to get out and take a break from the holiday rat race, meet us over at the Roast Coffee and Tea Company on Main Street in Patchogue, just a few store fronts west of the Patchogue Theater. Have some hot brews and exercise the right side of the brain.

New Book on Sketching

I have a great new book that I have been reading, just published by North Light Books called Sketchbook Confidential, edited by Pamela Wissman and Stefanie Laufersweiler.

This book has sketching secrets from private collections and sketchbooks of over 40 artists. What I like about this book is the common thread that all the artists have about why they sketch.

You can purchase it from Barnes and Noble or even North Light books. Or, request that your local library carry it, this is a book that has a lot of great sketches and writes about the value of sketching. All these artists say that sketching is as necessary to an artist as drills are to an athlete. Read more by checking out the book!

Wednesday Sketch Night December 8th at 7 PM

We'll meet at the Roast Coffee and Tea Trading Company at 7PM. Let's try to focus more on sketching people this week. Come on out for a hot beverage, they even have hot cider, take a break from the holiday rat race, and sketch.
