Urban Sketchers

June 17, 2023 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm EDT


Urban Sketchbooking emphasizes storytelling that conveys a sense of place or a moment in time through drawings completed from direct observations.

Bring your supplies (sketchbook or paper, pencil, pen or other materials) and join us outside in downtown Belfast to produce quick sketches of Still Life OBJECTS, PEOPLE in motion, or PLACES found in architecture. Participants will spend some time working independently and then reconvene to talk about what everyone observed and what stories their drawings can tell us.

All ages welcome! Don’t forget sunscreen, a hat, and a water bottle. Contact the organizer, Joan Bickelhaupt (joanbickelhaupt@gmail.com), with any questions.

Joan Bickelhaupt is an artist/educator who currently leads arty gatherings where she encourages creative tinkering. Joan is hosting Urban Sketching meetups for adults and family groups in a variety of locations as a way to share her experience as a traveling artist.

Friday June 16: (PEOPLE in motion) Meet at Waterfall Arts during the Art Market (256 High Street, Belfast)

Saturday June 17: (PLACES in architecture) Meet outside Downshift Coffee (39 Main Street, Belfast)

Sunday June 18: (Still Life OBJECTS) Meet at the gazebo at Steamboat Landing and we’ll walk over to the city dock (34 Commercial Street, Belfast)
