Our Mission

With over 150 years of artistic heritage, the Philadelphia Sketch Club is a not-for-profit dedicated to providing a community for visual artists, appreciation of the visual arts, and visual arts education.

Our Actions

The Philadelphia Sketch Club supports and nurtures working visual artists by providing studio space through our workshops program and by providing exhibition and networking opportunities. We support the appreciation of the visual arts by providing free public access to our exhibitions. We support visual arts education through our low cost, open enrollment workshop program. Lastly, we promote the historical value of the visual arts to the community by providing free public access to our historic collections and facility.
