Hi everyone! This group is for anyone interested in getting together to go sketching, drawing or painting in and around Hampshire and if you just happen to like visiting parts of Hampshire and might like to do something artistic to capture the many aspects of our county then this group is for you too!

It doesn't matter what level of experience you have, even if you've done anything artistic before - all skill levels are welcome (I am certainly no expert!). It's not a class, and there is no formal tuition involved, just people who want to draw/paint at any level of experience. After all, the only way to get better is to practice and hopefully we can all learn from each other!

The format of the meetups is usually for the group to meet at different places in and around Hampshire, which could be outdoors (weather permitting) or indoors, museums, cafes - wherever, sketch whatever interests you for a couple of hours or so, re-group and go for some refreshments where possible. We can share tips and learn from each other in a casual environment that is friendly & non-judgmental!

The group will be open to all members to suggest and organise meet-ups that interest them - and I hope you will!

You will need your own art supplies, any medium suitable to the location is fine - basically paper and something that will make a mark on it will do!

There is no charge to attend a meet but if you have been along to one of our meets & would like to continue coming there is a £4 a year membership payment, really just to cover the meetup website fees.

So let's get together and meet some like-minded people and do some sketching!

We're 136 Sketchers
