Sketches often capture fleeting moments or feelings and as such can often leave deep impressions. A fundamental technical skill and a vital part of the artist’s repertoire, sketching is the ability to quickly record an impression of a person, place, object or moment.  “Sketch” the exhibition, highlights and encourages creative exploration of mediums utilised when sketching.

Allowed Mediums:
Graphite, pen, ink, pencil, charcoal, watercolour, pastel, acrylic, oil. Excluded mediums are photography, digital photography and digital art.
