Sunday sketching on Feb. 28: La Grande Bibliotheque

février 14, 2016

This will be a new venue for us! It’s hard to find places in the winter for our growing group.

On February 28th we will meet at the main entrance of La Grande Bibliothèque when the library opens at 10 am (475, boulevard De Maisonneuve Est). This a grand place for drawing spaces, people, views from the windows, etc. Drawing is permitted inside the library. At noon we can go out in the neighbourhood for lunch and then sketch some more in the library. At 3:30. pm we’ll meet back at the main entrance, find a coffee shop and have a review of sketches.

    Great news Shari!
    Won’t it be impolite to leave after lunch? I have another appointment that follows but I would so love to participate.

      Not at all. Many people arrive and leave at different times. I often have to leave early as well. The point is that you do as much time as you can spare. It’s probably better to arrive on time if it is your first time just so you know who people in the group are. See you soon!

    What a great idea! I so love our Bibliothèque and I love the thought of drawing the neat reading spaces they have with the Délire exhibition. Woohoo! One of my favourite drawing spaces is on the metro. It is a challenge to capture people before their journey is finished. What about a tour of all the metro stations? Its kind of an intense idea… a sketch at each platform…. a marathon of setting changes.

      Hi Shelly,
      The metro stations are a great idea. In fact we did them a few years ago and it was quite successful. We can certainly add that to our list.
      See you Sunday!
