America’s oldest club for artists, the Philadelphia Sketch Club has offered visual artists the means to assist each other in their art and promoted the appreciation of art in the greater Philadelphia community since 1860. The club’s activities include 20 art exhibitions every year, presentations by leaders in the local art world, critique sessions to give artists constructive comments on their works, and six workshops per week for practice in painting and sketching. The culture of mutual assistance is the same one valued by the club’s founders and early members, who include Thomas Eakins and N. C. Wyeth
