August Sketchwalk at Marina Bay

 

Credit : sketch by TIA

Last month we tried out a new format for connecting remotely, to capture the sense of camaraderie of our pre-pandemic sessions. 

This month-end session, let's begin the slow crawl back to sketching together, *safely* again. We're going to Marina Bay! 

It's a huge area, surrounding Marina Reservoir, with vantage points from *and* towards areas such as: 
• Bay East Garden 
• Gardens by The Bay 
• Singapore Flyer 
• The Esplanade & The Float 
• The stretch between Merlion Park and The Promontory 
• Marina Bay Sands and Waterfront Promenade 

We'd like to challenge you to come More details may be added, but here's a quick summary for now: 

1. Arrange to meet fellow sketchers — no more than 5 in a group — by posting the spot you plan to capture on the event wall; ask who's joining and discuss in the comments until you confirm your little quintet. 

2.Make your way to the location, be aware of surroundings, and maintain required distancing; remain in your separate groups. 

3. Challenge yourself to find and frame a viewpoint that hasn't been seen yet; this will also help prevent too many of us crowding the same perching points. 

4. Post your sketches, snapshots and videos online — with hashtags #sketchwalk082020 #usksg — so everyone can easily find the day's artistic output. 

5. Some sketch leaders will go around to catch you in action for posts on Facebook and Instagram, so look out for them! 

6. We will do a Sketch Show via ZOOM at 3:00 PM to substitute our usual post-sketchwalk gathering; make your way home — or anywhere suitable — in time to join the session. 

See you on Saturday!
