The Hobbit Sketch Book Club- 12/21

On Tuesday nights we will listen to a reading of the novel The Hobbit while drawing models themed in novel’s style. Bilbo’s journey takes him from his light-hearted, rural surroundings into more sinister territory.

The Hobbit, or There and Back Again is a children’s fantasy novel by English author J. R. R. Tolkien. It was published in 1937 to wide critical acclaim, being nominated for the Carnegie Medal and awarded a prize from the New York Herald Tribune for best juvenile fiction. The book remains popular and is recognized as a classic in children’s literature.

If you have never read this novel it is time you heard it read while drawing with other members of our group!

For many of us, there will be a learning curve using ZOOM. As far as these interfaces go, it is very user-friendly. As with anything new, it takes a little time to get the hang of it. So here are a few tips:

If you can, use a desktop or laptop. They are the easiest to control, and of course, provide you with the largest image for you to draw from. If those are not available, a tablet works well. A phone works well but can be so tiny that the group aspect can get a little lost.

Try to get the best WiFi connection you can. For many us, that means being in a certain area of our home or office. It will elevate your experience, though almost everyone we worked with has had a good connection.

Upon entering: When you enter a meeting, your video and audio are off. You may turn them on as we cannot control your camera and audio, but this is not mandatory. Look for the Video and Audio buttons on your screen. (See below for paragraph on Audio.)

The whole joy of connecting with others in these circumstances is seeing each other. There will be a button on your screen (in different places, depending on your device) that says either Gallery View or Speaker View. WE RECOMMEND GALLERY VIEW. That’s the view with all the faces.

One of the best parts of these sessions is sharing work. During our breaks we share our work (you don’t have to). It is truly a joy to see each other’s work.
