Sketchbook Art Program at Hasbrouck Old Stone House


HASBROUCK, NY — The Old Stone House of Hasbrouck, a regional arts and education center, has received a $630 grant through the Delaware Valley Arts Alliance to support a local sketchbook art program inspired by The Sketchbook Project, the national arts endeavor operated by the Brooklyn Art Library.
The Sketchbook Project supports individual expression through personal sketchbooks of drawings, collages, photos, writings and other works suitable for the printed page. The Old Stone House version, titled “Somewhere in the Catskills,” encourages participants to artistically explore the scenery, buildings, events and people that make our area so special.

Participants can purchase sketchbooks directly from The Old Stone House for $7 each, which includes scanning them for posting to an online gallery established just for this project. Those original sketchbooks become part of an Old Stone House Sketchbook Collection.

Prominent area artists will conduct the program’s two major upcoming workshops—September 18 and October 16—and otherwise guide participants in ways to express themselves within the pages of their own sketchbooks. They are Alana Sherman, Paulina Tracz and David Munford.

For more information, and to register for the program, email theoldstonehouseofhasbrouck@gmail.com, or call Alana Sherman at 845/436-0070.
