Sketching Event: The Hangar Flight Museum

Happy New Year Everyone!!

We had a successful kickoff for 2022. 16 sketchers took on the challenge. Happy to see some members we have not seen for awhile, and one new member, Barb Z. Special thanks to Sara, from The Hangar Flight Museum, for helping me set this up.
For those who left early or did not stay for the Photo Op, please send me an image of your sketch. My email address is below in the reminders.


๐ŸŽจ We have been asked not to sell any of our sketches from this event.
๐ŸŽจ The museum would love to post our sketches on their social media. Send me your sketch by Jan 21, Friday noon, and I will forward. I will also include those images I took on Saturday.

Next sketch outing will be from your home on Jan 29. It will be two parts. The week prior I will ask you to send me or post on our facebook page your favorite Calgary Urban Sketch from 2021. These I will post on this website to showcase your work and the year. Thank you Deborah D for this suggestion. I am also going to try and set up a Facebook meeting for 2 hours, where you can sketch something in your home, or finish a sketch, or just play. During that time we can chat or just look at the top of everyone’s head ๐Ÿ˜‚

Happy Sketching Everyone!!
