Sketchers in St. Louis are invited to participate in the global drawing marathon known as World Wide SketchCrawl #29 on Saturday, October 16. Artists are going to meet up for a day of sketching the flora and fauna at the famous Saint Louis Zoo in Forest Park. The starting point will be 10am at the entrance near the parking lot on the Hwy 40/64 side of the zoo. We will sketch until about 4pm so drop in at anytime during the day and stay as long as you like. There is no charge to enter the Zoo or be in the SketchCrawl but participants might want to bring some cash for food and frosty beverages. We will try to gather for a group photo and to compare sketches at some point later in the day but it is all intended to be casual and fun. We will also upload some of the sketches to the SketchCrawl Forum. Artists in over 70 cities throughout the world are taking part in this event; from Jakarta to Denver, from Paris to Detroit and here in St. Louis too. Over a dozen sketchers from the St. Louis Drawing and Painting Meetup have already RSVPed for the event. Everyone is welcome. Just show up with your sketchbook and get your draw on.
