Art 'n' Facts: Sketching with the DHV Collections June 2018

  • Dallas Heritage Village 1515 South Harwood Street Dallas, TX, 75215 United States (map)

Are you curious about the hidden collection of Dallas Heritage Village? Do you like to doodle in the corners of your pages? For Art n’ Facts, The Cedars Union is partnering with DHV to combine two of our favorite things: artifacts and art. It was just meant to be.

The first Saturday of each month will feature various artifacts from the Village’s collection storage and an artist to teach you how to sketch these historic pieces. 

Be sure to bring a sketch pad and pencils (or other dry media). Your $10 fee covers the two-hour program as well as the ability to walk around the Village afterwards and get inspired for future drawings on your own using your new drawing techniques.

This month's featured artist is Shelby Orr.
