Member Saturday: Sketch Eastern State

June 20, 2021, 11:00 am – 12:00 pm

Member Saturday: Sketch Eastern State

Members only. Registration required.

Eastern State’s iconic imagery has inspired artists for centuries. Photographers, painters, and sketch artists alike have used their medium of choice to capture their unique perspective of the penitentiary’s eerie beauty.

Now, try your hand at drawing Eastern State’s cathedral-like, barrel-vaulted cellblocks with guidance and tips from a local artist. No prior art or sketching experience necessary. Artist to be announced.

In observance of Juneteenth on June 19, 2021, June’s Member Saturday will take place the following day, Sunday, June 20, at 11 a.m.
