What we're about

No art experience is required for this drinking and drawing group, which roams the greater Portland area (though wine drinking experience does help!). We are dedicated to linking our members up with as many social drawing opportunities as possible. We organize our own events, and publicize events from like-minded groups such as Urban Sketchers and ASIFA, the Portland chapter for the International Animation Society. Started by Leah Kohlenberg, who runs The Roaming Studio online and onsite art classes (www.theroamingstudio.com), and co-organized by Mike Reese, Temris Ridge and Andrea Matthews.

Sketching Sunday at PAM

Portland Art Musem

Sketching Sunday @ PAM! We are re-instituting our Portland Art Museum sketching group with a twist. The old sketch group sketched on the museum’s free night, which was crowded and noisy and not conducive to sketching. PAM now has an annual membership for $40 ($20 students) so we are meeting once a month on quiet Sunday mornings. Here’s the drill: • Meet inside Park Ave entrance at 10:00 am • Visit one piece of art as a group for 10 minutes and discuss • Break up into singles or groups to sketch, chairs available • Meet at museum's coffee shop at noon • Share sketches and meet other artsists Please note the museum rules on sketching: dry media only Size of sketchpad may not exceed 16 x 20 inches. No large portfolios, containers, or bags may be taken into the galleries. Find PAM membership info here: http://portlandartmuseum.org/creativelicense/
