Sketchmob V&A Friday 6th December 6:30-8:30pm

The final Sketchmob of 2013 happens on Friday 6th December at the traditional seasonal venue of the V&A. Bring your drawing kit and any significant others for an interlude of sketching among some fine people. Meet up at 6:30 in the first gallery on your right (Medieval) as you enter from  Cromwell Road.
We will select the 2 or 3 galleries to draw in on the night (The Theatre Gallery is likely to be one with its great costumes and memorabilia, or the Silver Gallery, or the Asian sculpture………….) Draw and meet up back at the Medieval gallery at 8:20 to look at the sketches, then we head on to The Bunch of Grapes at 8:45 for a pre- Yule toast.
Looking forward to seeing you all!
