Sketchwalk July 31 (SAT)

The upcoming sketchwalk with OIC and Urbansketchers will be at Joo Chiat - which is a residential conservation area in the eastern part of Singapore - its shophouses and bungalows are reflecting the typical architectural styles of the turn of the twentieth century, as well as many unique and straits eclectic style Chinese shophouses are also preserved, these give the area its unique flavour. The area is also known for Peranakan delicacies.

We will meet at Paya Lebar MRT control station this Saturday at 9am, and start walking toward Joo Chiat at 9am sharp. It is quite a fair distance to walk so be prepared for it. See posted map. I am equally new to the place so be prepared to get lost a little. If that happens we would just stop and have coffee and sketch at the same time. Let's do this free and easy. I have a map drawn out but we need not stick to it, however it serves as a rough guide especially for those who are joining us later in the day or whoever got lost along the way.

By 1130am, we would stop for makan. If you have any question, you may call me (Don) @ 84183032 or Drew @ 91070735.

Coincidentally, the 28th Worldwide Sketchcrawl is also held on Jul 31 the same day we are having the sketchwalk. So beware, the whole world is sketching on that day!
