Eastport Arts Center and Eastport Gallery are pleased to offer the EAC Sketchbook Project, a new immersive workshop series designed to ignite artists’ creativity and help build artistic community. Artist-led drawing sessions will be offered from 10:30-11:30 am Saturdays, February 3 to March 23, at the Arts Center. Those who purchase the EAC sketchbook gain access to these weekly meetings and a host of additional resources, including a booklet of prompts, online tutorials and inspirational videos. Experienced instructor and Eastport Gallery President Alison Brynn Ross and others will guide participants in the weekly workshops with cues and feedback to unlock the creative spirit, enhance artistic skills and bring sketches to life.
As part of the project, the Center will provide free sketchbooks and instruction for students of the Edmunds School, Cobscook Institute, Shead High School, Sipayik Elementary, and EAC’s Homeschool Co-op.
Participants of all ages are welcome. To sign up, please email email@example.com. This project has been supported by a grant from the Anomino Foundation.
The Saturday sessions are optional, other than the fact that those interested must pick up their sketchbook at one of the February Saturday meetings to participate. To conclude the project, participants will be featured in a week-long exhibition at EAC, with an opening reception on March 30.
