There is also another Dutch Sketch Meet planned for the 26th - in Leiden this time.
I hope I can make it this time.
guess ill go first
Sketchmeet was once again, friggin awesome! here are the results
Looks like you've been nice and productive, Erik . Man I definitely want to take my sketchbook to a zoo some time. I did once before but I lost the sketchbook I brought with me (and gave a few sketches away to kids who really really wanted the tiger scribbles, lol). It helps to have people around you who are equally serious about studying (although fun must be had, of course).
Yes! that sketchmeet was rly cool! hope we can do it again sometime soon!
We will have to arrange one again, so keep an eye on the board and we'll soon post some more info!
Hey I'm new here and I'm probably going to ask a dumb question. But how can I join a group like this? It's really nice to see that the dutch artist group is so popular/populated btw. I would love to get in contact with more dutch artists. I'm a beginner but I'm really motivated to try and improve my skills
Ms.Happygirl: No need to join whenever someone feels like arranging a new sketchmeet everyone is free to join! we're not that organised and anyone can cal out a time & location!
Ok, thanks. I'll keep checking back at this topic then. Can't wait to go to a sketchmeet
Hey guys 'n gals,
I recently started posting on CA and would like to meet up. Anyone up for sketching in Amsterdam in the weekend of 27th - 28th of august?
Also, does anyone here know if the courses at Wackers academie are any good? I'm thinking about doing this one (saturday afternoon version). Do they emphasize both construction and observation of the figure?

Ms.Happygirl: there's also a Facebook group you can follow.
Kapri: Where were you thinking of going sketching? I want to visit the Rijksmuseum again sometime next month. Maybe we can go together. (Or anyone else?)
I've never been to Wackers. Look at the student and instructor work before you sign up...

Anybody interested in joining? The date can be changed, but weekends are not an option for me.

Last call to arms: tomorrow at 11:00 we are meeting at the hermitage in Amsterdam to study Rubens.
Edit: my results of sketch trip to Rubens here. Had a great time. Who's up for another one? Maybe get together in a cafe or another museum?

Many of the workshops appear to be fully booked. They're going with a "one person per workshop" policy allowing for more people to participate.
Managed to get a spot on Sunday (15.00 to 16.30 PM, model drawing with Cor Vrolijk).
