Improve your sketching skills quickly! The best night of the week! Fast and furious.

Each week at 6pm UK time we present an hour of speed sketching on zoom.  We’d love to see you there too.

On Wednesday we announce the subject by email sent to your inbox as well as on our Facebook Members Group page.  Subjects have varied from bears to elephants, from humans to dragonflies, from penguins to butterflies.  There is always something new.

Join us for an hour to find out that it is possible to sketch at speed.  Via zoom we show you a series of stills and videos for timed sketching.  It’s great practice for sketching anything and you don’t even have to show us what you’ve done!  If you haven’t joined before, please do – there’s more information about it below. 

Speed Sketching Hour

Thursday, 6pm UK time on Zoom

Receive your link – and please consider supporting this hour, because it’s fun, informative and because our IT costs run a whole lot higher than our sun-downer costs… Many of you have been with us since February and it’s always lovely to see you.

Click to choose your own donation (maybe contribute every now and again)

Donate at least £8 per session (our suggested amount)

Join Mary-Anne and Claudia for an hour of drawing.  We’ll sometimes invite other artist, traveller or conservation friends to contribute their specialist knowledge too.

Please join the meeting by 5.50pm – you will be in a waiting room until we let you in just before 6pm.  (Ssshhhh, if you’re late to arrive, don’t worry, but please mute yourself and work extra hard to catch up).

We encourage you to draw and paint too, even if you have never drawn at speed before.

Please bring your paints, drawing things, as well as tea, coffee, beer, wine or anything that helps you and enjoy the flow and energy of painting with other people.  It’s also not about what you produce – it’s about the process of doing it, exercising eye, hand, heart and brain and putting the hours down on paper. You are also welcome just to watch!

So, sharpen your pencils, find your paints and paper – and be ready for 5.50pm.

Keep looking and keep commenting and posting on the Art Safari Facebook Group page it’s so encouraging to see the progress! You can invite your friends to join from there too.  Thank you to all of you posting on Instagram too.  Please tag using hashtags of your choice plus: @artsafari #artsafari #artsafarivirtual #artsafarilifestyle
