SKETCH-LEADERS: Patrick Ng, Benedict Tay 
Instructions for the day: 
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 explore hidden corners around Little India that hasn't been seen/drawn 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 #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. 

IMPORTANT NOTE: 
In compliance to Government Covid safety guidelines, we can’t be congregating as a big group of sketchers. As such, we can sketch in small clusters of no more than 5 persons each, and there must be a minimum distance of no less than 15m between each cluster. 

Please strictly comply. USkSG (and our sketch leaders) will not be held responsible for any flouting of the above guidelines. 

Thank you.
