All sketchers are welcome and there is no need to sign up. Send in your sketches in jpg format and mail them to: by Monday, June 12, 2017 and I will include them in Tuesday’s slideshow. Complete instructions are found by clicking the Sketch Tuesday tab at


Specific instructions for the Summer Plans of 2017: I will be listing a topic below but each week I will also be posting some inspirational paintings in the Sketch Tuesday post to help you get started. You are welcome to complete Sketch Tuesday like always with anything that comes to mind with the theme. Or, you can use one of the paintings as the inspiration, copying all or part of it as you wish.

Also, I want to encourage you to branch out in your art media since the summer season is perfect for trying new things! Pick something you want to experiment with and learn how to use the art supplies alongside your children.
