Masterpieces from Museo de Arte de Ponce will be opening up to the public October 3. This is an outstanding exhibition and also a great opportunity for people to sketch in the galleries.
The Brooks allows sketching at all times, but not that many people take advantage of it. I would love to see the galleries, specially where Masterpieces will be installed filled with people sketching.
I have organized an opening weekend celebration for the exhibition Oct.3 and 4. I would like you to encourage your students to come to the Brooks to sketch Saturday, Oct.3 and Sunday, Oct.4. anytime between 11 am - 2 pm. We will provide stools. Very important: ONLY #2 Lead pencil is allowed, and a maximum size pad of 12 x 18. Other materials such as pastels, charcoals, paint, etc will not be allowed.
Since I don't know how big the response will be, please tell your students that if they are coming on that weekend, that they should sign up online at www.brooksmuseum.org/sketching. This will be very helpful to us so we know how many people to expect during this time period and we can be ready with stools.
Thank you and I hope you truly encourage your students to participate. Students who sign up online and are coming to sketch during that weekend and those times will receive FREE ADMISSION.
