10th Urban Sketchers Symposium in Amsterdam
I think we were with 75 volunteers and we all got a red T-shirt. My task was to sell merchandise for the Urban Sketchers Netherlands and accompany people on several sketch walks. There were about 500 people with a workshop pass from all over the world. For sketch walks people didn't need a pass and in the end photo we were with 1500 sketchers! The little red spot in the back is me!
On my first day I had time to do 2 sketches in the neighborhood of the venue (The Zuiderkerk).
On the second day I was selling merchandise in the morning, but in the afternoon we had a Sketchwalk in the neighborhood of the Amstel and Amstelveld. I think there were about 50 people joining this sketchwalk. Natascha and me had some time before we met again and do the Show and Tell and make the photo. I made a sketch in my Little Sketchbook (the one I got at my workshop with Gabi Campagnario) from the terrace of Nel.
In the afternoon it was time to do the last Sketchwalk with all the participants (1500!). We were sitting all around the IJ near the Nemo Museum and the Scheepvaart Museum. There were sketchers everywhere you looked!
It will be in Hong Kong!
For me it was over. I met a lot of new and old people, specially Mary Jo and Alex from Chicago. For me it was time to relax and digest the experiences of those days. We'll meet again, but I'm not sure it will be in Hong Kong.
I started my Symposium in Zandvoort where I did a workshop with Suhita Shirodkar and Marine Grachnek.
