Honestly there are So Many fall festivals and events that I decided to put a couple extra events on the schedule. I figure, I want to go to these and draw and if anyone wants to also go draw, feel free to join! I’ve also talked about a potential after-work sketchwalk, but am thinking that might be better rolled into more of a sketch-dinner or drink-and-draw? Definitely open to discussion on this, especially as Fall rolls into Winter, some indoor locations may be nice.
Saturday, September 7, 1pm-4pm – St. Louis Art Fair – Meet me at the corner of Forsyth Blvd and Central Ave, near the ‘Creative Castle’ at the Art Fair. The event is a great chance for some intense people-watching and people sketching, against the backdrop of a vibrant arts festival.
Saturday, September 21, 2pm-4pm – Great Forest Park Balloon Race – Meet me by the statue of Saint Louis in front of the Art Museum. We can sketch the giant balloons and their crews, then try to capture the start of the race. Lots of color and movement to be found here!
You can find more info on the event and the event schedule here. I suspect meeting back up by the statue will be best, but we can finalize an end-point once we get there.
Date and time TBD – USk St. Louis Sketchwalk – Whenever this is, if I’m available, I will be there!
Bonus: Not quite a sketchwalk, but I’ll be going to the September 14th showing of Shakespeare In The Streets: Love At The River’s Edge (an adaptation of As You Like It, one of my favorites) which will start out at Page & Ferguson at 7pm. If you’re also interested in the show (which is FREE) and want to meet up and sit with me there, feel free! I’ve found theatre sketching to be one of my favorite ways of sketching people – actors are likely to take dramatic poses, and sets are intentionally designed and interesting to draw.
Date TBD – Location also TBD, but as the months begin to get a bit colder and darker, I think it would be nice to kick off a monthly drink-and-draw type event during the week. There’s also a few more fall festivals that might make for good sketching fodder.
I’ll be thinking of restaurants that would be suitable/amenable to a small-scale sketcher invasion. Let me know if you have suggestions!
Likely sketchwalk fodder/locations include Zootoberfest, which is free, and at the zoo, which is a great location anyway
I’m currently teaching 1-2 workshops each month through St. Louis Art Supply. Upcoming classes include an urban sketching fountain pen workshop and an intro watercolor sketching workshop.
Register and see current class schedule/details here, though not all classes may be open for registration at the time of posting.
My upcoming class dates are:

You can read a lovely review of the Fountain Pen Urban Sketching class on the USk St. Louis blog, though I’ve changed the paper we’re using since then.
