December 2, 2017 Sketchout

For our December Sketchout, we can start getting into the Christmas spirit at the Festival of Trees!

We can meet at 11AM at the entrance to Festival Of Trees in the Shaw Conference Centre or you can start sketching on your own. There is a $10 admission but it is for a good cause.

Then at 1pm we can meet for lunch and sketch-viewing at Sherlock Holmes Pub on Rice Howard Way 10012 – 101 A Ave (about a 5 minute walk away).

July 1, 2017 sketchout

Our group hasn’t met in a while for sketching so I am going for it and posting an event for our July 1st sketchout at The Works Art Festival in Sir Winston Churchill Square.

We can meet under the entrance banner at 11am or just go ahead and sketch on your own and then meet back at the tables in front of the music stage at 1pm for eating and sharing sketches. Food trucks are an easy choice for lunch.

April 2017 Sketchmeet

Saturday April 1, 2017

Biological Sciences Centre, U of A (click on North Campus Map and scroll down to click on Biological Sciences Centre)

Meet at 11:00 (see below) or wander on your own

Meet for lunch at 1:00 in the Garneau Lounge, HUB Mall

I was on campus today and did a bit of reconnaissance for our sketchmeet on April 1. Enter the Biological Science Building through the door of the new wing that is closest to Saskatchewan Drive (See photo – The Centennial Centre for Interdisciplinary Science).

Walk straight ahead and turn right at the Second Cup (closed on Saturdays). Go through the double doors and I will be at the Fungi and Lichens case to the right for anyone who wants to meet first at 11:00. Otherwise, feel free to wander on your own.

We can go to HUB for lunch at 1:00. You can grab some food and we’ll meet in the Garneau Lounge (upstairs middle-ish in HUB).

Paid parking along Saskatchewan Drive, in the Windsor Car Park and behind HUB, or you can take the LRT.

I couldn’t find the staircases to nowhere but there are museum cases of specimens in a lot of the elevator/stair landings in both towers, and there are amazing views of the city from the windows in the upper stairwells.

January 2017 Sketch Meet

Thanks to Joanne Milson and Yvonne Rezek for organizing the January sketch meet!

Happy New Year, sketchers! We will meet Saturday January 7 at 10:30am at the interior entrance to the Lee Pavillion from the Citadel Theatre. It’s not a big space so if you come a little late, sketchers will be easy to find. It’s a lovely venue for winter sketching with all the lush foliage and warm moist air. This will be Urban Sketchers Edmonton second visit to the Lee.

We’ll stop for lunch or snacks at Three Bananas Cafe across the street at 12:30pm, which will give us additional scope for sketching urban life.

See you this weekend!
