Ottawa World Wide SketchCrawl 51

The last world wide sketchcrawl organized in Ottawa was in October 2015 (see our report for WW Sketchcrawl 49 here http://ottawaurbansketchers.blogspot.ca/2015/10/a-great-day-in-ottawas-byward-market.html).

Ottawa is overdue for another WW Sketchcrawl so artist Laurie Foster is organizing a SketchCrawl in Westboro Saturday April 23, 2016. So mark your calendar!

World Wide SketchCrawl?

The idea for a world wide sketchcrawl originated with Enrico Casarosa of San Francisco in late 2004 . Enrico is an  Italian storyboard artist and director who works at Pixar Animation Studios.

Since 2004, SketchCrawl has become a worldwide phenomenon participated by artists around the world armed with sketchpads, pencils, watercolor and other sketching materials.

Join Us - In Westboro - April 23 


So - put your pen to paper on April 23 for as long as you can (be it 20 minutes or 5 hours) drawing, sketching, journaling about your day and what you see around you. For one day, slow down, look around you, see ... and draw or write. Record your day. No specific level of skill is expected ! Anyone is welcome.

We will start by meeting over coffee at Starbucks at 421 Richmond Rd

 The stop for lunch will be decided in the morning (when numbers of sketchers is known)
You can choose to meet at lunch or keep sketching

Final check-in is back where we started the day to make it convenient to grab your bike or car
at the Clocktower on 418 Richmond Rd.
