We're inviting everyone who likes to sketch, beginners & pros and anyone in between to join us in a sketch-out at Open Streets June 10th, 2012, Lyndale Ave South. The plan is we will meet for breakfast at the French Meadow Bakery, 2610 Lyndale at 9 AM for coffee and breakfast - we'll get acquainted and then disperse to sketch. We'll meet again at 4:30, again at French Meadow to show our sketches and I'll take photos and post them on the blog like we did with the Minnesota State Fair sketch-out . I will have more details about the sketch-out as we get closer to June 10th.
Sketch-outs are a lot of fun, but it is also an endurance thing, so be prepared. For info on what to bring with you to Open Streets, I suggest reading Roz Stendahl's excellent multi-part series on equipment and other preparations for sketching at the MN State Fair- I found these posts especially useful: Part 1 The Heavy Equipment , Part 4: "Travel" Essentials for Sketchers, and Part Six: Dressing for Success.
This video from Blue Cross shows the work that goes into the event and all the visually fun stuff to sketch at Open Streets (Roberta and I are shown sketching at 3:57):
Here's the sketches Roberta and I did last year at Open Streets and some artwork we did based on the sketches (click on the sketches to make them bigger): This is my sketch:
