Saturday, August 27, 2011 is the Third Annual Minnesota State Fair Sketch Out.
There will be two meetings to meet other sketchers and share work and adventures: at 1 and 4 p.m. Find additional details and a map to the meeting locations here.
Participants receive a free commemorative 2.25 inch button as shown in this post (while supplies last—so you really want to show up at the meetings!).
If you can't attend the Fair on the day of the Sketch Out, just go to the Fair on another day, draw something from life (an animal, people on rides or in crowds, the odd buildings, whatever) and send me a jpg, and I'll save you a button (again, while supplies last). You can pick up your button at another time.
The sketch out has been growing each year. Sketchers of all skill levels are welcome. Bring a friend. (The Sketch Out is free, you have to pay your own admission to the Fair.) See you there!
