EAC’s Sketchbook Project, a collaboration with Eastport Gallery, proudly presents its online exhibition. The show may be viewed here.

Led by artist Alison Ross, the 8-week project was packed for participants with interesting lessons and inspiration, as well as a loosening up of their drawing muscles! In addition to a group of community members ages 10 to adult, the project reached students for four local schools. Cobscook Institute, Sipayik Elementary and Edmunds Consolidated School students sketched their way through introductory and figure drawing sessions with Ross, as well as delving into her engaging booklet of 20 drawing prompts, while Eastport students worked on their own the prompts.

Instructor Alison Ross (from left) and art-lovers enjoyed the EAC Sketchbook Project reception on March 30.

An in-person exhibition, with sketchbooks on display for visitors to see, was held at EAC on Saturday, March 30. Ross photographed a few pages from each book, and participants were also encouraged to submit online if they couldn’t make the reception.
With more than 100 EAC Sketchbook Project ‘official sketchbooks’ going to students and 50 to community participants, the offering has been a great success!

Edmunds Consolidated School student Nay submitted this work, in response to the ‘make a collage’ prompt. Find many more examples of work from the EAC Sketchbook Project in the online exhibition!
