Go Big. Go Bold in Chinatown.Posted: June 19, 2021 Filed under: USkO | Tags: Chinatown, urban sketchers, usk, USkO Leave a comment
If you think art is an isolated hobby, try painting and sketching in the heart of Chinatown. Bustling with street vendors, shoppers, and colorful people, there is not a minute of sketching without someone peering over your shoulder. Creating art in public does invite the curious. Although it may be uncomfortable at times, it is our mission as Urban Sketchers to raise awareness about art in our community.
From Urban Sketchers website:
Our mission is to raise the artistic, storytelling, and educational value of on-location drawing, promoting its practice and connecting people around the world who draw on location where they live and travel.
This was our first collaboration with Mark Brown Plein Air Art Master Class taught today by Dennis Daniel. It was such an honor to join a group of talented Plein Air local artists. We hope to do another collaboration again soon.
