Pencil Sketching 101

Come join us on Wednesday Feb 13th when we will all be doing still life pencil sketching.

Still Life is the best subject in art for learning and teaching the skills of drawing and painting. It teaches you how to look at objects and see them like an artist - with a perceptive awareness of their outline, shape, proportions, tone, color, texture, form and composition.

The step by step still life class will teach you the drawing techniques used to create the still life which was done with a 2B pencil on cartridge paper.  

Please bring the following for the class:

2B Pencil


A3 size cartridge paper

    What is cartridge paper? I've heard of it, but always wondered what it was. I wish your Meetups were a different night as I am always busy on Wednesday evening teaching my meetup group, the Royal Oak Artists.

      Hi Adwoa, cartridge paper is drawing/sketching paper found in Michaels. It a bit textured/rough and perfect for sketching with pencil. Any sketching pad would do as long as the paper is not too smooth.

      Hi Carolyn, cartridge paper is the best for pencil drawing/sketching. You should be able to find those at Michaels or any art store. If you would prefer me to get them, let me know. If there are a lot of people who would prefer me to get the supplies, I can do that.
