Result of SketchLive in May 2021







Our May Sketchwalk last Sat morning... with a twist... not just sketching on-location, but locations (in all our own
Due to Phase 2 (HA) restrictions, and for the safety of everyone, we had to sketch from home... thankful that through Zoom, we were able to sketch WITH one another, live, albeit from all over the island.
We had a couple new friends joining us today, Erin (SG) and Eva (joining us from Taipei), had Rafidah joining us from Tokyo... and we had to say goodbye to our veteran sketcher Michael as he transits out of SG into his next phase (we wish you all the best!).
We had fun chatting up close as we sketched... 8 sketchers walked away with lucky draw prizes, and everyone left feeling happy about a Sat morning well-spent. ๐Ÿ˜Š
Enjoy the beautiful works!

Urban SketchLive this Saturday

In light of current realities (Phase 2 High-Alert), and to play our part in working with our government to beat this pandemic, there will be no outdoor USkSG Sketchwalk for at least the month of May (we will watch the situation regarding June and beyond).
Instead let’s do an “Urban SketchLive” challenge this Saturday. That is, 'Sketch where you Live'. But it’s a double meaning, because it will also be a live sketching session as we do it together real time, just like during our normal Sketchwalks.
The Event Zoom Room will be open for the duration of our usual Sketchwalks (9:30AM - 1:00PM), and we will sketch in one another’s virtual presence together; so have your devices (phone / laptop, etc.) with you as you sketch, so we can chat as we do it. [In fact we will open the zoom room by 9:00AM for those who wish to hang out over virtual breakfast together before Sketchlive commences.]
NOTE: The Zoom Link will be shared on actual day to those who have indicated "Going", so please click the Going button if you intend to join us.
You can sketch anything / anywhere in your home (the whole point is to stay indoors), but in case you need ideas, here are some things you can sketch:
1. Your favorite corner / area of your home, that you are excited to show others. Perhaps a place where you spend the most time at when you’re home.
2. The view outside your living room (or any other) window.
3. Something you feel is unique to your home.
- It can be a special tool, a piece of antique furniture, an interesting pet, an instrument, etc. that shows us a part of you we never knew.
At 12noon, we will gather back in front of the screen and have our virtual Show n Tell, where you will share about your sketch(es)... why you did what you did, and what they mean to you, etc.
We don’t get to hang out with and hear from one another very much during our outdoor sketchwalks; hopefully this will give us a on-the-spot glimpse into one another’s lives / living quarters. We should be able to end by 1:00PM latest.
There will be a lucky draw for those who stay till the end. (Details of this to follow or announced on actual day.)

• TripleOne Somerset 
• Design Orchard 

[*IMPORTANT: Pls note that this month's sketch walk is NOT going to be at Raffles Marina (RM) as previously alluded to... there has been a change in plan due to some factors; RM will be for Dec Sketchwalk now... so PLS DON'T GO THERE!]  

SKETCH-LEADERS: Patrick Ng, Sangmi Lee. 

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. And please have your face mask on at all times. 

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 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. 

Remember: MASKS ON. 

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

Thank you.
