A SketchCrawl isn’t a class, workshop or competition. It's an opportunity for creative people to meet each other, draw together, and share their sketches with each other and online. It’s a great way to spend an afternoon, make new friends and celebrate the city!
What are the rules?
1. There are no rules.
2. Anyone can participate, be it to draw for 20 minutes or the full scheduled time.
3. Any level of ability is welcome, from veteran artists to first time sketchers.
4. Bring your own sketching gear. A hat, water and sunscreen are a good idea.
5. Kids under 16 must be accompanied by an adult.
Keep your eye on the weather reports; if thunderstorms threaten we’ll reschedule.

Sketching at Las Olas Blvd, Fort Lauderdale

Fort Lauderdale, Venice of America, where I currently live and work, is one of most popular city many tourists would visit. I started to organize a new sketching group within the firm with other sketching amateurs. Sunday morning, it’s a second meeting time and we decided to stay at a café on Las Olas, which is a commercial street full of restaurants and boutiques. Coincidently, the location we picked was the same perspective I did on one sketching when I came here for interview.
