What we're about
Welcome Fellow Sketcher!
Sacramento Sketchers is a fairly new group (started in November 2012) for artists who enjoy the challenge of sketching and drawing landscape scenes, objects, portraits and figures from real life. Our events are partnered up with the well-established Sacramento Plein Air Painters meetup group which currently has 489 members. So, more artists usually attend our events than the RSVP numbers on our pages indicate.
If you like the camaraderie and feedback of being around other artists when you draw, this group is for you! If you also like to paint, you should join Sacramento Plein Air Painters, too.
For the most part, our events are not classes and most of our meetups are free of charge. Occasionally, one of our artists may offer a demo or a more formal step-by-step lesson.
Sometimes we'll have friendly competitions like quick draw events and art show events at a few galleries who'll spotlight our artworks.
We have a friendly group critique, quarterly in a restaurant, along with Sacramento Plein Air Painters - bring one drawing or sketch and bring your appetite!
Our focus is on fun, friendship, and on always improving our sketching and drawing skills.
Kids under 18 are welcome to our events with an accompanying adult and well-behaved dogs on leashes are fine at (most, not all) outdoor meetups.
So, take a look at our upcoming events, become one of our charter members and join us, then RSVP a "YES" for something. Grab your sketchbook, your drawing tools, and come have fun with us! You don't need to RSVP "No" - just click the "Yes" button. Thanks,
~Martha Esch, Organizer
