A great opportunity for a monthly sketch out—at the Bell Museum.
I'm thrilled to announce that the Bell Museum of Natural History on the University of Minnesota campus is going to begin a monthly sketch night on
October 7, 2010 from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m.
These sketching evenings will be free with admission to the Bell ($5 per adult). (This is yet another great reason to join the Bell and save money!)
The official blurb on the event is:
An informal monthly (first Thursday) gathering for folks who like to sketch from nature. Not a class but popular local artist and teacher Roz Stendahl will offer pointers to those who want them. All skill levels are welcome. Experienced sketchers work independently or with like-minded artists sketching and sharing ideas. We'll suggest themes that fit Bell resources for those who'd like to focus on shared topics. Bring your usual sketching materials or make use of limited paper and pencils available for sale from the Bell. Adult program (ages 12 and up with adult supervision). Some specimens are available for rent.
So mark your calendar now for First Thursdays at the Bell. You'll be able to hone your observational skills with the use of their great dioramas and resources. I'll post the upcoming themes as they are finalized—but remember, there's no need to work on the "announced theme." Come and sketch your favorite birds, animals, and plants.
