Artistry Unleashed Club

Artistry Unleashed is a FREE club that meets the third Friday evening of every month at 6pm.  This club is a very hands-on club, so come prepared to get messy & have fun.  In this club you can plan on exploring a wide variety of mixed-media techniques.

Check out the Artistry Unleashed Album for inspiring photos!

Next meeting: Friday, February 16th, 6pm

In February we’re going to try our hands at urban sketching.  Don’t worry if you don’t know “how to draw”.  That’s not what sketching is about.  It’s getting general shapes and main objects.  Bring whatever pencils and paper you have on hand.  Bring printer paper and fold it in half so it won’t be too big to fill.  You can sketch from a picture, memory, or the room.  An eraser is allowed but not encouraged.  If you want to bring your little travel watercolors or some other color medium, to add a touch of color, feel free. This is a relaxed, uncompetitive way to practice landscape.

Suggested Supplies:

  • Paper
  • Pencils
  • Sharpener
  • Eraser
  • Clipboard or something firm to sketch on
  • Color medium
  • Reference pictures or phone or tablet
  • Drinking water


As a side note, if you’re looking to destash supplies but don’t want to just throw them away, we’ve been collecting for the Ronald McDonald Houses. The kids always need things to do and making art is a lot of good for them. They don’t have to be perfect, new, or fine art supplies. Even leftover bits and pieces can be used somehow. Please do check that things aren’t dried out or unusable. We are ONLY accepting at Artistry Unleashed club or Book Arts club. Please DO NOT take your donation to Ink Paper Rubber and expect Jen to accept them. This is something the two clubs are doing on their own. Your understanding and generosity is kindly appreciated.


Speaking of the “Regular class kit” I’ve had a couple ask what that means. For me it’s a tote bag I keep a set of basic tools and supplies in for classes and clubs. That way I’m hopefully not forgetting something I need and I don’t have to pack and unpack every time. So here’s what’s in mine. You don’t have to do this, but it does make life easier👏. Hope this helps.
