AHA member Jane Hannah gives us a heads-up about a sketching opportunity, July 10, from 10 am to 2 pm. More details to follow.

We are hoping for a warm summer so that we can enjoy sketching the great outdoors of Montreal. On Sunday July 10th the Urban Sketchers Montreal has been invited to a Picnic/Vernissage/Sketching Day at Stewart Hall’s Cultural Centre in Pointe-Claire. Stewart Hall is situated in a gorgeous historic mansion and is a unique cultural venue located on the bank of Lake Saint-Louis. It is an absolutely stunning spot to sketch, in all seasons! Everyone is invited to sketch with us on that day starting at 10:00 am & we are invited to display our sketches in a group vernissage in the Art Gallery at the end of the day at around 2:00 pm. More details to follow soon.

Nous espérons avoir un bel été chaud afin que nous puissions dessiner/peindre les grands espaces de Montréal. Le dimanche 10 juillet 2016, les Urban Sketchers de Montréal ont été invités à participer à un Picnic/Vernissage/Esquisses au Centre culturel Stewart Hall de Pointe-Claire. Stewart Hall est une demeure historique sur un lieu culturel unique situé aux abords du Lac Saint-Louis. Un endroit absolument magnifique pour faire des croquis, en toutes saisons! Tout le monde est invité à esquisser avec nous ce jour-là à partir de 10h00 et nous sommes invités à afficher nos croquis dans un vernissage de groupe dans la Galerie d’art à la fin de la journée vers 14h00. Plus de détails à suivre bientôt.
