Date: Saturday, 6 July 2013
Time: 3pm to 6pm
Meeting point: Public area under the Esplanade Bridge
This year’s Singapore Youth Festival (SYF) theme is ‘In.Fusion’ – the idea that art is everywhere and all around us. Celebrating in conjunction with the SYF, the Urban Sketchers will be having an adhoc sketchwalk on 6 July (Saturday) from 3 to 6pm around the Esplanade (see map for details and suggested routes).
About 40 pupils and students from local schools, along with their teachers, will be joining in on this sketchwalk. USK members are welcome and encouraged to join in the activity. One of the main objectives of the walk is to introduce the concept of urban sketching to the youths and younger generation – the idea of “a studio without walls”. As such, this is a great opportunity let the participants pick it up with a hands-on while catching a glimpse of the ones who are more familiar with the concept “in action”, so to speak.
Do join us and have look at the suggested routes. Primarily, the participants will be guided by their teachers. However, please don’t shy away if you are approached to help or guide them in terms of directions or techniques.
As usual, the session will end with a display-and-share at the starting point (under the bridge).
