Loudoun Sketch Club

Creating and Supporting the Visual Arts in Loudoun County, Virginia since 1944.



The Loudoun Sketch Club is an organization as special as the beautiful county we live and create in. Each of our over 160 artist members brings their unique skills. We are novices, hobbyists, teachers and professionals. We work en plein air and in the studio.

We create with a brush, a knife, a camera, a pastel stick, a pencil and so much more. There are members who have been in LSC for decades and others who have just joined for the first time. What runs through all of us is a passion for art. We live for our creative expression, to create and to share. And we love it.

This year like everywhere else in our global community, life has been changed and fraught with challenges. Our usual in-person gallery shows have been replaced with online shows. The first of which will be launched on this website with work available for viewing and purchase for the next year. In-person shows will be starting soon.

As for our outdoor activities, our artists have been doing their plein air painting around the county, socially distanced, of course. New artwork is being created every day. Rest assured we are still creating.

Many artists are now teaching and exhibiting online. Please subscribe to this website to keep abreast of all we are doing. Or join our ranks to become part of the community. You can also follow us on Facebook (Friends of the Loudoun Sketch Club) and Instagram (@loudounsketchclub).

I am honored to be serving as president even through such a challenging time. I look forward to what new and exciting artwork and ideas will come from our artists because of it.

Keep on Creating!

Lis Zadravec, Loudoun Sketch Club President, 2020
