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.)
