See the Art Museum in a new way by sketching in the galleries. Bring your own sketching supplies, or stop by the Main Lobby to borrow one of our supply kits and sketchbook. Then sketch wherever you would like, or pick up one of our prompts to jump start your creativity.

This summer heat is making us long for a day at the beach.  If you can’t make it to the shore, why not sketch one of these beachy scenes in the CAM collection to transport you there in spirit.  Be sure to check out Frank Harmon Myers’s Children at the Beach in G123 and Joaquín Sorolla y Bastida’s The Little Granddaughter in G225.  You might also find inspiration in Rufino Tamayo’s Dancers Over the Sea in G229.  What other artworks transport you to the sea?

Share your sketches with other Sketching Sunday artists on social media!  Snap a picture of your work and share it on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram.
