April 23rd is World Wide Sketchcrawl #51and we decided it was time for Draw: Madison to have another one. In our early days we did a couple and it was a lot of fun. We will start at Farmers Market on the square and "crawl" down State St. sketching as we go. I will post a map next week of places we can meet up each hour between 10 am and 3pm. I am happy to be a facilitator and be at each given location. Come for a sketch or two or the whole day. We will break at noon for lunch which would give us a chance to chat, something we don't always have time for on Sundays.
From what I can gather online World Wide Sketchcrawls began around the time Urban Sketchers got going and was started by like minded sketching groups around the globe. It's nice to know that on a certain day some group of people who like to draw their city from life are out there doing just that. I will be posting Madison as a site on an online info board for the World Wide Sketchcrawl so anyone checking to see if there is one in Madison on April 23rd will find it and know where we will be. I noticed that so far several groups in France will be sketching and also UK, South Korea, Germany, Italy,the Netherlands, South Africa and Australia as well as groups in Florida and California so at least in spirit we will have plenty of company!
