URBAN SKETCHBOOKING
@ Waterfall Arts
July 12 @ 10:00 am – 12:00 pm
$5.00

Urban Sketchbooking emphasizes storytelling that conveys a sense of place or a moment in time through drawings completed from direct observations.

Bring your supplies (sketchbook or paper, pencil, pen or other materials) and join us outside in downtown Belfast to produce quick sketches of PEOPLE in motion, PLACES found in architecture, Still Life OBJECTS, and PANORAMAS and VISTAS. Participants will spend some time working independently and then reconvene to talk about what everyone observed and what stories their drawings can tell us.

All ages welcome! Don’t forget sunscreen, a hat, and a water bottle. Contact the organizer, Joan Bickelhaupt (joanbickelhaupt@gmail.com), with any questions.
