Come Draw with me! Artists of all skill levels welcome and encouraged! We will be having an informal Dr. Sketchy Event in front of the Sidney and Berne Davis Art Center in the Downtown Fort Myers River District…We’ll be doing 5 minute poses during the Art Walk. Bring your art supplies (iPads/iPods Welcome) and lets meet up for a little impromptu sketching session. I’ll be bringing some extra paper and pencils for anyone who feels like just stopping by. This will be a free event but I will be putting out a Tip Jar so anything you can throw in will go toward Paying the Model and the extra Paper/Pencil supplies as well as a portion to the Art Center. Come make Art and Support the Arts!
