Reminder for the December Meeting of the MCBA Visual Journal Collective

December 6, 2012

See the post for details. Note the earlier meeting start time for this month.

December 17, 6:30 to 9 p.m. Sketching Scavenger Hunt

Join us to wrap up the year with a sketching scavenger hunt. Think of it as a sketch-in (since we'll be indoors.)

We'll begin the evening by making a small 6-pocket folder (out of maps donated by Thomas Winterstein).

Then each participant will be given 6 journal cards that will fit in the pockets (cardstock suitable for dry media donated by Roz). A list of topics will be handed out. Participants will then scatter to capture those subjects in sketch form on one of their 6 cards.

At the end of the evening we will display all the sketches (without names) and there will be blind voting for winners in a number of categories. (If you don't sketch fast don't worry, there is a category for favorite long sketch as well as other categories for people who "find" all the subjects.) There will be a book arts related prize awarded to each winner—prizes include small sketchbooks, book arts how-to books, and such. 

It's a great way to practice your sketching and enjoy the work of other visual journal artists. 

The meeting is free and open to all adult visual journal keepers who want to play along. All you have to bring is your favorite sketching pen or pencil.

ALL SKILL LEVELS are welcome—this is a time to PRACTICE in a great environment, while having fun.
