Come to create and hone your powers of observation while exploring Arlington during this open sketch session in Virginia Square. Experts from Sketching the District will start the walk with an introduction to sketching followed by an exploration of Virginia Square led by WalkArlington that includes multiple stops for drawing.
Urban sketching is the act of drawing and documenting the world around you, whether that is your local neighborhood, museum, park, or cityscape. Sketching facilitates a deep connection to your surroundings and an appreciation of the beauty in everything.
Afterwards, we will gather for a casual lunch. All are welcome.
What to Bring
Bring your sketching materials or a notebook and pencil, and cash/credit card if you plan on joining for lunch.
Where to Meet
We will meet outside of the N Quincy St entrance to Central Library. Look for the orange umbrella! We will walk to 3 locations in total.
Do I Need to Have Drawing Experience?
Absolutely not! We welcome all skill levels and simply want to encourage you to experience Arlington in a new way.
This walk is co-hosted by WalkArlington and Sketching the District.
