WEDNESDAY: Westchester Sketchers at the Unitarian Church in White Plains


This week we will gather at Community Unitarian Universalist Congregation (CUUC) for a fun drawing experience. Some of you may remember this site, also known as the Unitarian Church, as we held two workshops there last spring. The building is of a unique mid-20th century design that embraces its natural setting on an 8-acre property that includes wetlands, wooded areas, and steep terrain. The building is conveniently located 2 blocks west of the Hutchinson River Parkway, exit 14.

This event will be two-fold. We can sketch inside the building which includes a beautiful sanctuary, the window views, or outside on the grounds if weather permits. Or, we can pose for each other. Thank you to Susan Chavez for this fun idea. Or we can do both. The choice is entirely optional.

We will also have a DEMO from Kim Tortolani on how to create your own personal Greeting Cards with matching liners for your envelopes.  If you would like to try doing this, please bring card stock, scissors, and a glue stick in addition to regular art supplies.
