Sharpen Your Pencils - Elements of Design: Texture

This meetup will focus on the Element of Design - texture.

We will begin by looking at examples of artists works that have an emphasis on texture and will have a group discussion on how the artist used the design element of texture in the artwork.

Please bring any of your own art that uses texture as a design element to share with the group.

After discussion we will sketch from volunteer costumed models - focusing on the different textures in the costumes. After the timed sketching period is over we will be critiquing and sharing our sketches - rules of critique decorum will be provided at the meet up. Please note all participants will be asked to share their sketches for critique. During posed model time it is asked that discussion be held to a minimum. (that is mostly a reminder for me -lol) 

A raffle drawing will be held at the start of the meeting.

    I would love to come but my family is coming in for an early Thanksgiving as the airfare was 1/3 the price. I second Merna's request for a second meeting on texture!

    This meeting sounds very interesting and a challenge. Sadly I am already committed to another MeetUp on Sunday Nov 17th. Perhaps you will decide to try a second meeting on texture?
