Sketching at Crossroads Market

What a buzz, so much to sketch!  17 people joined us today in minus 21 Celsius weather.  Sign of a true Canadian👏.  Crossroads Market will become one of our summer locations when the scheduled event is cancelled due to weather.  What an amazing welcome/surprise/gift when Nicole, General Manager, came around and gave everyone a $15 dollar gift certificate.  And the food, so good.  Check out their post on us on Crossroads Instagram.

Next weeks sketch location is Golden Acre Home & Garden, 620 Goddard Ave NE.  Meet inside near the customer service desk.  Bring your stool.  11:00 start.

Sketching at Rosso Coffee Roasters in Victoria Park

17 people enjoyed a great little spot to sketch the Biscuit Block Building from, and to sketch people.  There was mostly foot traffic so we had the place to ourselves 🙂 And free 4 hour parking on Saturdays, bonus.  Will definitely be returning to this location.

Next week is Crossroads Market.  Note the starting time is 10:00 am, in hoping to beat the crowds.   


The sketches were hung on the wall with care, In hopes that future Sketchers soon would be there….

Wow, that was much more work than I had anticipated.   Thanks to Project Managers, Master Hangers & Advisers: Deborah & Jim; to Anyway-I-Can-Help Technicians & Apprentice Hangers: Anne, Bob, Chris & Rod; and finally to Security & Adviser: Pam.

The display looks fabulous, and is arranged on 3 different walls.  It will be up until the end of February at Judith Umbach Library.


Request for sketches from Livingston outing

I sent Ron, Assistant Property Manager, Real Estate Services, QuadReal Property Group, my contact at Livingston, an image of our sketches. He responded, “Great to see the finished products. Do you happen to have higher resolution pictures of all the sketches? We would love to circulate this within our company intranet.”
If you are interested, please send me a image of your sketch and any of the shots you took of the grouping to my email address on this web page. 
Happy New Year to you and yours.
