Summer Session Art Date 1: Mosey at the Museum


A local favorite: the Minneapolis Institute of Arts

Take some time to stroll around your local museum- it doesn’t have to be an art museum, but your grandma’s basement doesn’t count!  Think something cultural or science-y, artistic or natural. What exhibit grabs your eye? Does it remind you of something?   How will this moment influence and motivate you in your art? Sketch your impressions of the exhibit or doodle your thoughts.  Be mindful of what your local museums allow in the galleries, so carry your go-to pencil to jot down your favorite works and some notes.  Post a picture of your journal entry or an influenced work done with your favorite media.

For the next two weeks, 5/21 thru 6/3, Wet Paint will have select Faber-Castell graphite pencils, mechanical pencils and sets on sale for 40% off MSRP!  These are available in a wide rage of values and grades so you will be sure to find your new go-to pencil for sketching this summer!
