A. Minchau Blacksmith Shop, June 2018

Urban Sketchers Edmonton are joining me in one of my goals as Edmonton’s 5th Historian Laureate: sketching Edmonton’s architectural heritage (or as much as we can!)

For our second in this series of sketchouts, the A. Minchau Blacksmith Shop at 8108 – 101 Street was a clear choice because it is at risk of demolition.

Karen’s dog, Olive, is the official mascot for Urban Sketchers Edmonton. She loves history.

Another beautiful sunny day and the artists were obviously inspired – some great sketches came out of this. Hopefully more good will come of this and this historic building will be preserved and restored.

  1. Great to see examples of everyone’s work. I’ve been meaning to join you and seeing the works have given me inspiration. Thanks.

  2. It would be great if you could join us, Johanne! I will be posting the location of the July 7th sketchout soon.
