Sketching out your Week


It’s been a while since I plugged any of the Lubbock Sketch Club’s weekly activities, so let’s get that out of the way right now…

Every Saturday evening is Sketch Night. Basically, a bunch of folks show up Saturdays from 7-10 p.m. at the Freebird’s restaurant at 4930 S. Loop 289 with paper and pencils. They draw stuff, critique each other, visit, drink sodas, and generally hang out and enjoy exercising their artistic muscles. Anyone is welcome — just come out, shake some hands, make some sketches, and get to know the folks in the club.

The other regular weekly event is the Figure Drawing Group, which meets every Wednesday from 6:30-9 p.m. at the Lubbock Municipal Garden and Arts Center at 44th Street and University. Ya can’t be an artist without learning how to draw the human body, and that’s what the Figure Drawing Group is there for. Giggly dorks should stay home — there are live models, some weeks clothed, some unclothed, and this is for serious artists who are working to improve their artistic skills. E-mail Robert Garza for more info.

The Lubbock Sketch Club is always looking for new members — get in touch with them today, make some new friends, and learn how to become a better artist.
