Happy New Year, Everyone!
Now is a good time to update particpaters, readers, interested parties, hangers-on, etc., as to what we are up to now that the new year is upon us; and to emphasize, once again, that anyone who has something to draw with and on is welcome to join us. Age is not a factor, experience is not a factor. We do this because it is fun and we enjoy each other's company.
1. We continue with our "during the week" sketchabouts, for those who can get away, on Wednesday mornings beginning on Jan 2nd, 2013, at 10am at the McDonalds on Road 68. We will sketch there for a couple of hours, share our drawings and maybe have a bit of lunch.
2. The "Third Saturday Sketchabouts" will continue on each third Saturday of each month. We will begin the series this year by joining up with other artists from around the world with the "38th World Wide Sketchcrawl" on January 19th. We will meet at 9am in the Food Court at the Columbia Center Mall to sketch the people, things, places, and other items having to do with the Mall. We'll share our work at 11:30 in the Food Court, and for the really hardcore folks, we'll continue on until about 3pm making this a Marathon sketch session, as the WWSk's are actually intended.
3. The "4th International Urban Sketchers Symposium" will be held this upcoming July in Barcelona, Spain. Having been to the "3rd Int'l USkSymposium" in Santo Domingo last summer I highly recommend this event to anyone interested. If you follow the Urban Sketchers online, you'll meet some of the real movers and shakers in this movement as well as pick up a lot of ideas, pointers, and fresh ideas on how you do your thing.
Don't forget to check us out on our FACEBOOK page for updates on the Weds and Third Saturday Sketchabouts ("friend" us if you haven't), and of course, this BLOG is our online base.
