We are kicking off our Sixth Annual Uxbridge SketchFest with a bang! We have the amazingly talented artist Howie Green coming to Uxbridge to lead a workshop on how to urban sketch. We will walk short distances around the Uxbridge common and use the beautiful architecture and landscapes of Uxbridge center to build our urban sketching skills.
Perfect for all levels of artists. Beginner will get themselves started, and more advanced artists will hone their skills!
This workshop is FREE! Please RSVP so we know how many supplies to prepare. We will provide clipboards to draw on, paper, and pens / pencils. You can of course bring your own if you have supplies you prefer to use.
By getting started with Howie, you’ll then have the skills you need to participate in our Sixth Annual Uxbridge SketchFest, which runs from Sunday September 17th through Tuesday October 31, 2023!
Our Urban Sketching workshop will be held on Sunday, September 17th, 2023 from 1-3pm. If it rains, we’ll hold the workshop in the gallery space.
Initial Meeting Location:
BVAA Open Sky Uxbridge Community Gallery
5 South Main Street
Uxbridge, MA 01569
The space is fully handicapped / disability accessible with no stairs. It is immediately next to a large free parking lot.
This workshop is free and open to the public. No experience is necessary. The fun of our workshops is that we all try new things we’ve never done before.
All are welcome – this workshop is open to BVAA members and non-members. Feel free to bring along a friend! We’d love to see you there to try some new things and explore your creativity!
Here are a few sketches by Howie to see his style!
