An Afternoon of Hawaiian Slack Key Guitar

We held an extracurricular mini sketch event today to welcome fellow sketcher Deborah who is visiting from Connecticut. In spite of the short notice, eight resident sketchers accepted our invitation and were rewarded by a leisurely two hours of relaxing in the shade of more than a few large trees, and listening to live music in the company of an appreciative crowd. The laid-back atmosphere of the event proved contagious as we chatted about our sketches and travels, and shared laughs about our attempts to sketch the Bandstand (whose architecture offers plenty of straight lines but seemingly not a single right angle).

As always, don’t forget to check out our sketches on Flickr and upload your own!

See you at our next event on August 27​ at UH Medical School!

Mini Sketch Event this Sunday!

Since we like to make Urban Sketchers feel welcome when they visit Hawaiʻi, we have arranged a mini sketch event this Sunday (August 20) for a sketcher from Connecticut. Meet us at 3:00 p.m. near the pond (see map) at the Kapiʻolani Park Bandstand to sketch performers at the Hawaiian Slack Key Guitar Festival!
