SketchCrawl in the Twin Cities

Saturday, April 11, 2009 is the next scheduled SketchCrawl.

What is SketchCrawl?  It's a world-wide drawing marathon event founded by Enrico Casarosa. It's held all over, wherever even just one sketcher goes out to sketch. If you aren't in the Twin Cities and want to organize something in your area see how to participate here

Ken and Roberta Avidor and I have been talking about getting a group together to participate in the Twin Cities. It looks like we have some interested folks: we pitched it to the MCBA Visual Journal Collective last night before the meeting started.

So here's our plan. If you are a sketcher in the Twin Cities area and want to join us, please do. You don't have to be a member of the Collective, and you don't have to do anything more than have a desire to sketch out in public, have some fun, and, well for our event, enjoy cake, but more on that in a moment.
