Can we do “urban” sketching in a small town? Yes, we can!
The urban sketching motto is “See the world one drawing at a time.” The idea is to draw on location where you live and travel and to share your drawings. To learn more about this international community of sketchers, visit www.urbansketchers.org.
The Glengarry area is full of interesting towns, homesteads, landmarks and landscapes to draw. Our informal Glengarry Sketchers group meets the second Saturday of each month and will gather at various locations in the coming months.
This Saturday, May 11 we’ll gather at 28 Kenyon Street East in Alexandria at 9am (or come when you can). This is the building you may have read about in the Glengarry News which is to be restored to house the Glengarry Archives (parking available behind the building). There are several interesting heritage homes nearby and enough shelter to find a spot to sketch for a while.
We’ll regroup at 11:30 to share what we’ve done and grab a coffee nearby.
