Lanchester SketchClub online – July’s theme: East Meets West

29th July 2020

We hope you’ve enjoyed the past few months of the Lanchester SketchClub, and we look forward to resuming in person soon.   Last month’s Sketch Club was about Drawing Machines and we look forward to sharing your artwork online on Twitter using the #CovSketchbook or tag us @lanchester_ia or via our Facebook page.

The SketchClub is a monthly space and time to be creative and sketch anything related to a different Lanchester inspired theme.  On the last Wednesday of every month the new theme will be revealed and this month we are travelling the world with… East Meets West!

The short video and pictures below will hopefully provide some inspiration and feel free to delve into the archives for some inspiration or download the worksheet.
