Great sketching opportunities coming this weekend!


As you may know, this weekend is the annual Journées de la Culture (Culture Days) event, scheduled September 28-30.  Thanks to the ambitious plans of local organizations and the efforts of the nonprofit  organizer Culture pour tous, this year's calendar promises a fantastic smorgasbord of sketching opportunities - in addition to all the cultural activities taking place.

If you are curious about the event's history, check out this article recently published in the Quebec Chronicle-Telegraph.  It appears the event was founded by the National Assembly of Quebec, and has since become a nation-wide concept.

When you take a look at the calendar, you'll find historic houses and museums, street performances, ralleys, and more.  Yvan recently mentioned a free figure drawing session that he'll be helping with, and I'm particularly interested in sketching some of the specimens in the Morrin Centre's recently restored turn-of-the-century science lab.

IF YOU GO OUT SKETCHING THIS WEEKEND, AT A CULTURAL EVENT, PLEASE CONSIDER SHARING YOUR SKETCH(ES) HERE!  
You can post a link below (in the comments), or email them directly to drawntoquebec@gmail.com.  

We'd love to compile a post with a visual record of the events here in Quebec City.  If you are somewhere else in the province (or anywhere in Canada), feel free to share your sketches, too!
