22nd world wide sketch crawl in georgetown, texas!

March 26th, 2009

22nd World Wide Sketch Crawl April 11, 2009 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. On the Historic Square in Georgetown, Texas

Meet at the south stairs of the courthouse on the square or join in the fun with sketch crawl participants where you find them!

Help create a sense of community for those of us who love art and want to share our enthusiasm with others. Network with one another. Have fun!

What should I bring? Art materials include (but aren’t limited to) sketchpad or sketchbook, favorite pencil, eraser, drawing pen, maybe watercolors or colored pencils – your media, your choice!

Other items that might prove useful include a water bottle, money, a small comfy folding chair, weather related clothing, camera.

Who should attend? Artists of a wide range of ages and abilities are encouraged to attend. Because of the nature of this event (being stationary, observing, focusing, drawing), bringing very small children isn’t recommended. They simply require too much attention for you to be able to participate fully.

Is there a schedule for this event? A sketch crawl is a casual affair. Arrive at 10:00 a.m. or arrive whenever! Those of us who are at the south stairs at 10am will converge upon the square for whatever length of time is comfortable. Participants may travel and sketch in small groups, pairs, or alone. Those who are interested in breaking at lunch may do so and choose from a wide variety of restaurants on or around the square. You can even use your lunch break as another drawing opportunity! At 2pm, reconvene at the south stairs of the courthouse. We’ll share and celebrate our drawings, and get additional information on how to access the forum at www.sketchcrawl.com, including how to scan and upload our drawings and/or pictures to the sketch crawl site (for those who might be interested in doing that). After 2pm, the sketch crawl adventure can continue for those who wish to do so!

What else should I know about this day? Saturday, April 11, 2009 is also a Market Days on the Square in Georgetown. Vendors will be set up around the square, and lots of people will be shopping, eating and strolling around the square. There will be tons to see and draw! Take advantage of the side streets and some alleys for additional points of interest.
