Friday, June 8th

  1. Drop-In Sketching Group
    • Start time: 10:00am
    • End date: Friday, June 8th
    • End time: 12:00pm
    • Noodling. Doodling. Dabbling. If a program description includes these words, you can be sure it will be relaxed and fun. Leave inhibitions behind and create free-form drawings, journal entries, small cards, or tiny books using simple items like a drawing pencil or roller ball pen and a notepad or journal.  While there is no “instructor” per se (again, this is a casual drop-in activity), we’ll be joined by Michael David Brown, a retired illustrator and Scarborough resident. This event is free to attend. Basic supplies will be available or bring your own.
