Thank YOU Ottawa Sketchers!

It has been one year since Ottawa become an official urban sketcher regional chapter and was welcomed into the international urban sketchers (USk) family by the USk membership committee!

Colin White, Kristina Corre and I (Cindi Foreman) made the application in late 2015 in order to build a local community that would meet to sketch and share and promote the Urban Sketchers mission and manifesto.

Thank YOU! 

In 2016, we met many times and met LOTS of Ottawa sketchers! At every event we saw familiar faces and new faces as well! We love when new sketchers come out to our events!

If you came to sketch with us once or twice; if you tried to attend every event; and if you wanted to attend but something always got in the way and you could not make it but followed along on social media, we thank you for all of your support in our inaugural year!

Ottawa urban sketching events are FREE and open to all ages and all skill levels! Everyone is welcome from veteran artists to first time sketchers!
