‘Keeping a Sketchbook: Drawing Your World’ with Sue Anne Bottomley ~ (Registration Required) at 10 AM, Starting 2/8/19

Sue Anne bottlemleybkJoin us for a 3 weeks sketching series (2/8, 2/15 and 3/1). Registration is required and you must commit to all three weeks.

Session: 1 ~ Friday, February 8th, is a one-hour preview class that will focus on choice of sketchbook, choice of materials so they can go buy them if they wish. It is a chance to meet the instructor, Sue Anne Bottomley. In addition, Sue Anne will take the session to get to know each student and discover their individual interests and what would they like to put in the sketchbook. She will show her sketchbooks and have materials on hand for participants to try out. A worksheet will be handed out to encourage the students to start drawing at home during the week.

Session: 2 ~ Friday, February 15th, is a two hour session comprised of warm up drawings, demonstration drawings by the instructor and both fun still life objects to draw. This class does not work from photos. At the end of the class, there will be time to show and share.

Session: 3 ~ Friday, March 1st, is a two hour session. In this wrap of session, the class will continue to work on their drawings from session 2, but with more emphasis on making the drawing look finished.

Registration is required and seating is limited so sign up today (click here) or call!

Sue Anne Bottomley is a New Hampshire native. Raised in NH and Massachusetts, and an art major at the University of New Hampshire, she left the area after her college graduation to live in Washington State, Maryland, and England. After many years away from home, she returned to live in New London, NH. Her first book ‘Colorful Journey: An Artist’s Adventure Drawing Every Town in New Hampshire’ included an illustration and some history about every town from each region of New Hampshire. In her book, ‘Pep Talks for the Would-Be, Should-Be Artist’ provides the inspiration you need to get up and out and start working on your art! Her newest book published in 2018 is ‘A Small City by the Sea: An Artist’s View of Portsmouth, New Hampshire’.
