Fort Worth and Dallas...Come sketch Wings of the City Aug 1!

The next outing for our Dallas-Fort Worth sketch group, in association with Downtown Fort Worth Inc. (DFWI), will be a self-guided “SketchTour” of the Wings of the City sculpture exhibition at several sites in Downtown Fort Worth on Saturday, August 1. You can learn more about the exhibition here: Wings of the City.  To avoid the hottest part of the day, we’ll meet at 10am at the “Active Pool” of the Fort Worth Water Gardens at the south end of downtown.

This outing will be exciting, providing sketching opportunities that mix figure drawing of the sculptures with their urban context.  We’ll walk from one site to the next, sketching at least three sites.  You may want to try something different like combining all your sketches on one larger sheet to tell a story, or adding a freehand map of the route to your work.  We’ll finish at Burnett Park around noon.   With refreshments provided by DFWI, we’ll share sketchbooks and ideas, and take a group photo to post online.

Bring a friend, and if this is your first outing with us, welcome!  The SketchTour 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.
