Sketch Crawl 2009 / Roberta's MCTC Sketch

It's coming up, folks...

From the Roz Wound Up blog:

Date: Saturday, April 11, 2009—Rain or shine!

Time: 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. (come any time during that window, see below for additional details)

Location: Como Park Zoo and Conservatory (admission donation $2 suggested) in St. Paul, MN

Wrap Up Get Together Location: Cafe Latte on the corner of Grand Ave. and Victoria St., St. Paul, at 4:30 p.m.

How it works: Show up at Como Park Zoo and Conservatory any time between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. Start sketching. You can do this on your own, come with a friend, or walk around until you see a group of us sketching and just join in with us. (If you come right at 10 a.m. you'll probably see a group of us going in and you can join with us right then.)

At 1:30 p.m. (in order to miss the lunchtime rush) we will meet as a group at the Zoo's restaurant (or just outside it if we are a really large group). (The restaurant is in the main building as you enter and pass into the Zoo. It's on the right, just after the information desk and you can't miss it.) We are going to meet at this time so that people can check in and see how it's going, split into new groups, and welcome new folks just showing up.

By 2 p.m. we'll go off sketching again and continue sketching until 4 p.m.

At 4 p.m. we'll all leave the Zoo (or conservatory if you have been sketching people and flowers) and head to Cafe Latte, where we will regroup at 4:30 p.m. You'll be able to purchase an early dinner, a snack, or a delicious dessert and coffee, in short, whatever you feel like. And we will share the art we've made that day and what is sure to be some lively discussion (the people I sketch with regularly are always lively talkers when the sketching is over).

So you can come for as long as you like, stay as long as you like, meet up with us for any or all of this.

Alternative: you can sketch out anywhere in the Twin Cities you want and still show up at Cafe Latte at 4:30 and we'll be happy to see you!


Roz has more details..

Roberta is really busy, so she asked me to post this sketch for her.

She sketched it at Minnesota Community & Technical College (MCTC). She forget to bring her journal so she had to use what was available... MCTC looks like a a great place to to sketch.

Roberta, I love the way you have caught the body language and the wonderful draping of the clothing! I'm so glad you grabbed this paper to work on!
