The support and opportunities provided by the Philadelphia Sketch Club to our community can only exist through the mutual support of our Metropolitan Philadelphia area friends and artists. Your support enables the Philadelphia Sketch Club to provide artists with studio space, exhibition opportunities, and free access to our facility.

Thank you for contributing!








Any Amount

A donation to the Sketch Club is an investment in Philadelphia’s artistic past, present and future. During the club’s early years, all we needed to keep the Club moving forward was our membership and a meeting place. As our city changed, however, so did the challenges. We rely on the generosity of donors like you to help us…

  • Develop new art programs for our community,
  • Communicate with our members, friends and new supporters,
  • Maintain our historic clubhouse,
  • And organize club activities.
