Bell Museum’s March Sketch Night Report

March 10, 2011

See the full post for details and some images.

At least 31 people attended the March 3 Sketch Night at the Bell Museum of Natural History. (I couldn't get a definitive count as people kept spreading out, coming and going into different areas.) The group is definitely growing in popularity. If you enjoy sketching nature subjects I urge you to come and join us in April when Jennifer Menken has selected waterfowl for the theme (in honor of Duck Stamp art competitions). (You are encouraged to sketch anything in the museum that interests you at any gathering.)

    Okay, trivial, but I’m intrigued by Marsha Micek’s pen case. Any chance of finding out what brand it is?

    Pam, supplies trivial? Naw.

    Marsha told me
    “It’s a Fishpond Tool Pouch and Fishpond is a fly-fishing-supply company. I got mine in Hayward, Wis., but I’ve seen them here in town (Mpls.) maybe at REI. I’m not sure. I’m sure they’re on the internet.”

    Hope that helps.
