In 1910 the brick house was built by Colonel James Walker, one of the most influential civic figures during Calgary’s early years. He lived in the house for over 25 years. It is located on 0.98 hectares of land backing onto a lagoon on the Inglewood Bird Sanctuary. For some on you who have been sketching with us for a while, this was one of the first places we sketched.
Park in the large parking area at Inglewood Bird Sanctuary (end of 9th Av) and walk on the path behind the sanctuary, in the natural area, to get to the house. It is a little bit of a jaunt. The weather is looking promising, catch a sunbeam and all should be good. 🌞
You may also choose to sketch something in nature, or there may be a train parked near the parking lot. This is a beautiful park, enjoy! Bring your camera if you are into birding.
Meeting Place: Find a spot and start sketching when you arrive. Feel free to arrive earlier. Plan to meet at the house at 13:35.
Inclement Weather: Event will be cancelled.
Please, mask required at photo op.
Please stay home if you feel unwell, or exhibiting any COVID symptoms. As per new COVID restrictions, keep 2 meters between you and fellow sketchers, and if you can’t, wear your mask.
