Pick Up That Pencil
Once they’re old enough, sketches become part of history.
by Sara Light-Waller
You love to draw. Your fingers get itchy when you’re not drawing. When you don’t have any paper handy, you draw on a napkin.
You’re not alone. Thousands of people around the world feel the same way. Urban sketchers are adventurers, naturalists, foodies, architects and museum goers. They love to draw the world around them.
Urban Sketchers draw quickly. They use special techniques to create fresh, spontaneous cityscapes. They have miniature art tool kits tucked into their messenger bags and purses.
Sometimes sketchers specialize in neighborhoods, or people scenes, or meals. They draw whatever is interesting to them at that moment.
On Thursday, December 15, Sara Light-Waller and Jane Wingfield, both experienced urban sketchers, will give a short presentation about how to be an urban sketcher. During the talk you’ll see some of their sketchbooks and tool kits as examples.
Afterwards, people are welcome to join for a short sketch happening. Bring sketch pads and pencils and whatever other tools you like to use. We’ll all be urban sketchers that evening.
This FREE event is at the Rectangle Gallery, 209 N Tower Ave, Centralia, on Thursday, December 15 from 6:00 – 8:00 p.m. The talk starts at 6:15. Please join us.RSVP’s are not necessary but if you have questions please email Sara, sketch event coordinator, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
