Sunday Sketching : Jan 22 Pointe-à-Callière Museum: From the Lands of Asia

In honor of the Chinese New Year celebration, launching the Year of the Rooster at the end of the month, let’s go sketch From the Lands of Asia!

  • 11AM START: Meet at the Pointe-à-Callière Museum in the main lobby. I have guest passes for the first 12 people. We ask that if you have a musuem membership, or don’t mind paying admission or splitting with someone, let’s do that. But – also they are running a Sub Zero Discount in Jan/Feb – regular admission is 1% off for every degree below zero C! Isn’t that funny? Also you can bring your Access Montreal card for a guaranteed 20% off in any weather.
  • Please note: No liquid or paint in the exhibition – only drawing tools please.  The museum also asks us to silence cell phones.
  • Policy on handbags: “Visitors are free to stroll through the Museum and the exhibition rooms with a medium-sized handbag. All backpacks, umbrellas, and other cumbersome objects must be left in the coatroom”. (Free hangers/ $1 Mini Lockers). There are a small number of stools available inside the exhibit. (I think only 2 per floor).
  • 3PM END: Let’s meet in the Saputo Lunch Room to show what we have drawn.  Please note, there is not food or drink for purchase on site, it is just tables and space for free. You will find the lunch room in the Ancienne-Douane Buiilding – accessible from the lower level tunnel, or by crossing the street to the new building. There are some big tables where we can meet, and maybe do some final touches to our drawings. You are welcome to meet at 3pm even if you do not have an admission to the museum. The lunch room, the gift shop, and the tower observation deck and restaurant are all open to the public without paying admission.

We’ve already been to the show and can say there are many great things to sketch from China, Japan and other parts of Asia.

      Bonjour Marie-Claude 🙂 Personnellement, je n’apporterais pas un. Ils ont des tabourets dans l’exposition – ceux sur la photo que vous voyez nous assis sur la photo – ces deux étaient déjà là dans la salle. Si cela vous aide? Mais si vous voulez vraiment un, alors je voudrais juste appeler le musem de demander à coup sûr? Merci! /// Hello Marie-Claude Personally, I would not bring one. They do have some stools in the exhibit – the ones in the picture you see us sitting on in the photo – these two were already there in the room. If that helps? But if you really want one, then I would just call the musem to ask for sure? Thanks!

    Hi Marc, some questions: can we bring watercolor in the Saputo Lunch Room? Also, can we bring food / light snack?

    Thank you!

      Yes Sonia, you can paint there in the lunch room, and bring food – it is for families and schools to have picnic lunches (rarely busy on sunday) But the lighting is average there – so I use the lobby (there are two lobbies on each side) – or sometimes I paint a bit at the coffee shop down the street :), or there is a cafe in the tower, the probably won’t mind if you watch out for their table cloths 🙂

    I will also appreciate your posting drawings produced on this session, if possible.
