February’s Sunday Sketch and Upcoming “Horses in Motion” Sketch

Our Sunday Sketch program for 2015 is underway! We were lucky to have Judie Mijares of Providence Academy join us as our leading artist in Februrary. Thirteen artists came to the Museum to sketch and explore the art on exhibit.

The Nic Fiddian-Green sculpture Still Water was a popular work to sketch! Artists enjoyed viewing and sketching the sculpture from different distances and angles. With artists all around the room, everyone saw and sketched a different view of the same sculpture. Artists also sketched from our loan exhibition of art by Edward Troye.
