Nature is great at it. So are urban planners.
The virtual sketching theme for this Saturday is pattern or repetition.
Take a look outside. It’s everywhere.
Draw what you see. Let the pattern or repetition of design inspire you.
Please post your sketches on Flickr. If you post to your Instagram, tag us @urbansketchersoahu and use the #urbansketchersoahu. Our followers on Instagram are growing!
Just like many 2020 events, the Okinawan Festival which attracts more than 50,000 visitors annually, is going virtual this year. That means everyone around the world can enjoy front-row seats from the comfort of their living room.
Grab an andagi (deep fried Okinawan donut) and your pencil or media of your choice and capture the Okinawan spirit and culture streaming online: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6LdjMxFqzXw

We have an interesting virtual sketch theme for this Saturday. We hope you will be excited to take off!
This Saturday begins the 75th WWII Commemoration Events in Hawaii. From 10- 11am (note the updated schedule), there will be 14 WWII warbirds flying over various parts of Oahu.
“To have these Warbirds in Hawaii, flying over the very deck of the USS Missouri where the Instrument of Surrender was signed on September 2, 1945 ending this global conflict, to honor all WWII veterans, is a tribute that will live on in the hearts of all who see it.”commemorativeairforce.org
Executive Director of Pearl Harbor Aviation Museum
This is an historic commemoration and we on Oahu are privy to witness this special tribute. Wherever you are, sketch what you see in the skies. If possible, position yourself for a grand view of the Legacy of Peace Aerial Parade. Keep in mind all beaches and parks are still closed.
It will be fascinating to see everyone’s sketches from literally different points of view. Please post your sketches on Flickr and Instagram and tag us @urbansketchersoahu or use #urbansketchersoahu.
On a side note: Christine, Bill, and I will try to post Saturday’s virtual sketching themes every Monday. If you have any suggestions or comments, please let us know.
