Sketch Tuesday- Orange

Sketch Tuesday Summer Art Plans 2016 button @harmonyfinearts

It has been a great summer of sketching with all of the families who played along. I always look forward to each slideshow and the creative ideas that are generated from the simple topics. Thank you once again to all of the participants!

Please note that this is a two week assignment! I promise I won’t be late in posting up the slideshow…..last week was the first time in all the years I have been doing Sketch Tuesday that it didn’t get posted and I felt so sorry for all of the new sketchers who sent in their very first sketches only to have me not be able to create the slideshow.


Paul Gauguin, Still Life With Oranges

Current assignment: Sketch something orange.

Due Date: Monday, September 12, 2016.

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, September 12, 2016 and I will include them in Tuesday’s slideshow. Complete instructions are found by clicking the Sketch Tuesday tab at

Music Appreciation Monday-Mozart

Music Monday on Harmony Fine Arts Join us every Monday for a new musical selection.


How about a happy piece of music this week? Well, it starts off with an upbeat tune but how would you describe the middle section of this piece?

This is one of the most famous composers ever- Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. We should all listen to more Mozart.

Piano Sonata No. 16 in C Major


This composer is featured in Harmony Fine Arts grade 1, 2 and 6 plans if you would like to listen to more Mozart!

Sketch Tuesday -Pond Slideshow

Please accept my sincere apologies for the lateness of this slideshow! I thought I would have internet access but it wasn’t so. I tried to log on using my iPad at a coffee shop and Yahoo locked me out of my account. So, my dear sketchers, please forgive me and enjoy your beautiful slideshow. I have no plans to be away for the foreseeable future so there should be no more delayed slideshows and disappointed sketchers.
