Sister City Sketch Event #1 – Theme is Tower

Hello Everyone! We are going to try something new, and I hope you will participate. Every second Saturday, thru the winter, Calgary USk’s are going to be collaborating with the Edmonton USk’s by sketching the same theme.

The theme this Saturday is TOWER, which is defined by Oxford Languages as

1. tall, narrow building, either freestanding or forming part of a building such as a church or castle. “the south-west tower is a wonderful example of late Gothic”
2. a tall structure that houses machinery, operators, etc. “a control tower”
1. rise to or reach a great height. “he seemed to tower over everyone else”
2. (of a bird) soar to a great height, especially (of a falcon) so as to be able to swoop down on the quarry.

You can sketch any time you get time, up to and including Nov 14. You can even submit a sketch done from the past.

Requirements are:
1. Stick to the theme for Nov 14.
2. Submit your sketch to by noon Nov 15 (.jpg format preferred)
3. Capture from direct observation. Not from a photo or image. Sketch something from in your home, out your window, or out and about.

Received images will be posted on our CalgaryUSk’s website, as per normal. It would be great if you also posted your sketches on the Calgary USk Facebook page. This can be done anytime, and hoping this will inspire others to participate.

If you have any theme ideas for future months, please enter in comments.

You are welcome to sketch each theme through the month, and again, it would be great if you posted them on our Facebook page and/or website.

Looking forward to seeing your sketches!!!!

  1. I delayed until the ninth and I’m practicing on my husband for my people skills to get ready for “The Reader” the day we do The Library.
