Groups using art to light up a murky January

Written by: | Posted on: | Category:

A happy new year to everyone from the Sidmouth Society of Artists (SSA) and Exmouth Art Group (EAG), who are once again combining to start the year with a bang.

On January 1, they started another 'Inky Sketchbook' Doodler`s month. This is a fun sketchbook project to encourage the sketchers to use their imagination using a daily prompt, eg 'New Year' and produce a five- or 10-minute sketch (or longer if they wish) using their own interpretation and in whatever medium they wish to work. This should create some smiles and lighten up a murky January.
