[Virtual] August Sip & Sketch!

Designers... It's time to get virtual style!


We'll provide the models and the liminal space to 'hang' in. You bring the sketchbooks, your curiosity, and drive to polish up your sketching skills. Oh, and your beverage of choice...


We'll start at 5:30 pm with a mini-lesson, and then have some timed sketching exercises. We'll close out by sharing our work (as we feel comfortable).


Aimed towards designers of all levels and students, this event will provide a live model in an informal, small group study session.


Have your drink, pencils and sketchbooks (colored pencils, markers, watercolors, etc are fine if you prefer) ready when you log on...
