Similar to a pub crawl, but instead of going place to place to drink, we go place to place to sketch!You’ve heard of a pub crawl, right? Well, a sketch crawl is similar but instead of going from place to place to drink, we go place to place and sketch! It’s a great way to meet like-minded people, practice your sketching in a friendly atmosphere, and maybe pick up a few drawing tips along the way.
We’ll walk to various spots around town to find interesting subjects to sketch (including an approximately 1/4 life-size model of the steam locomotive that ran between Parrsboro and Springhill). We’ll stay at each location for 15-30 minutes, then move on. If the weather is good, we’ll be outdoors. We’ll end the crawl at Black Rock Bistro where we can show each other our drawings and cool down (or warm up) with a beverage in honour of the pub crawl tradition.
• Bring your favourite sketching materials: pencils, pens, watercolours, paper, etc.
• Have a sturdy sketchbook or board to use as a work surface, since most of the time you’ll be either standing or working with the paper on your lap.
• Bring a portable camp stool or chair if you like.
• Dress for the weather. You don’t want to be uncomfortably hot or cold.
• Bring water or snacks to keep your energy up.
• Children under 14 should be accompanied by an adult.
• Don’t be intimidated that everyone will be more experienced than you. It’s not about making technically perfect drawings. It’s about having fun and being inspired by each other as we sketch whatever catches our eye during our crawl around town: buildings, trees, a bird on a wire… anything we want.
