2nd location: Seah St and/or Purvis St (10AM- 11AM) 
3rd location: The National library building (11AM- 12PM) Sketch this building from a lower angle or go to a higher level and sketch what you see out the window.

End point: Gather at 12PM. Steps outside Hans cafe at the National Library building.

Timing for the locations are only a suggestion. Feel free to roam and mix it up if you wish.
Go around and explore the 127 yr old Raffles hotel inside out.

If you venture to Purvis St, look out for the 74 yr old chicken rice restaurant called Yet Con.
Along North Bridge Road, say hi to our friendly art supply store, Straits Art Co.
