Folks, This Wednesday we will be sketching or participating in the monthly meeting and FREE demo being held at 7:15 PM, October 23rd, 2013, at the Bellport Community Center, 4 Bell Street, Bellport NY. Gina will be conducting a demo on how to make your own pamphlet style sketchbook.
If you want to learn how to make your own sketchbook, here's a good place to start and if you like the demo, we can do classes on this.
For those on a budget, you can make these with what you have around the house, except for the paper.
If you want to make the sketchbook with Gina, here's what you need to bring with you:
22 x 30 inch sheet of watercolor or heavy printmaking paper
Yardstick or ruler
a large needle with a big eye, or a #18 or 22 tapestry needle
waxed dental floss, bookbinding thread, OR waxed linen thread (harder to find) ANY ONE of these will work plus Gina has waxed thread she can bring with her.
THESE TWO ITEMS BRING ONLY IF YOU HAVE THEM please don't feel you have to rush out and buy them:
an awl if you have one
bonefolder if you have one

Sorry folks, I have to do some weather watching this time of year and gauge the time left in the evenings to sketch....it actually looks like it is going to be a nice evening so we are going to sketch in Sayville tomorrow evening. I am trying to stretch it out the best I can before we have to come indoors.....Sayville is one of the better spots where you can still sketch as it gets dark because the store fronts are lit up.....and you can get a nocturnal in if you want.
There are a many shops to sketch or you can sit down by the Starbucks....Four Star usually has seasonal stuff out front. There's an Irish Pub of sorts, Down the Rabbit Hole is cute....etc.....

This week we are going to sketch on Main street in Sayville near the Starbuck's. There is plenty going on, well lit at nght for those that want to stay and take advantage of the nice evening we are expecting tomorrow......you can pick either side of the street to sketch. This would be a good night to try the night sketch/painting challenge.
