Sketch the Public Art of KW



Saturday, November 8, 1:00pm - 4:00pm
Death Valley's Little Brother
84 King Street North, Waterloo, Ontario N2J 2X4

Uptown Waterloo and Downtown Kitchener have some strikingly beautiful art installations, each with its own one-of-a-kind story. The City of Kitchener has laid out a map of each of these unique pieces, perfect for urban sketching.

Sketchers will meet at DVLB coffee shop at 1pm, receive maps and divide into teams. Each team can choose which art installation(s) they'd like to sketch, and then head out. We'll meet back at DVLB at 4pm to grab a snack and share sketches.

Drivers and non-drivers may choose to team up together to get to their preferred sketch site. If not, there are a few sites within walking distance of DVLB.

This event is free and open to all ages and skill levels.

Please RSVP to this event.
