First Friday Free Sketch Day at University Museum

By Christina Steube

University of Mississippi

Visitors to the University of Mississippi Museum have an opportunity to create and take home their own masterpiece souvenir this summer during First Friday Free Sketch Day.

From 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Friday and Aug. 5, aspiring artists of all skill levels and ages can drop in to sketch an image of their favorite item in any of the museum’s galleries.

Thanks to a grant from the Lafayette Oxford Foundation for Tomorrow, free sketch materials will be provided on a first-come, first-served basis. Visitors can bring their own sketchbooks. Drawing stools will also be available for sketchers to sit or stand closer to their inspiration.

So come practice your art skills while viewing amazing artifacts and works of art!
