Our artist trading card group met last Saturday and we had 18 folks show up to trade. After the trade and a cup of coffee, Perry (standing), our wonderful 92-year old trader, suggested we get together for a sketching fest. He brought each of us a small sketch pad.
Nine of us decided to participate. We sat in a circle and with an egg timer, we each sketched or doodled for five minutes and then passed the sketch pad to the left and started another drawing until we had gone full circle.
It was a great way to loosen up those sleepy drawing "muscles" and also to get to know each other a bit better.
Guess what my first sketch was? First instict: draw a cat!
