:: Stewart Hall ::

Artists are among the most generous of people. Perhaps inherent in the appreciation of creativity comes a deep, underlying love of humanity and our Earth.
— Kelly Borsheim

I am happily exhausted at the moment as today was a jaw-dropping day that was filled with about 80 Urban Sketchers that were sketching on the wonderful grounds of Stewart Hall in Pointe Claire. I met people from Texas, Vermont, Toronto,  Quebec City and from around the greater Montreal region and within. A deep thank you to the organizing committee headed by Amanda Johnston from the Cultural Centre in Pointe Claire and of course Shari Blaukopf who was the liaison between Amanda and this wonderful event. A heartfelt thank you to both of you…. and to all of you who came out to sketch with us.

Je suis totalement émue et fatiguée en ce moment après la superbe journée passée sur les terrains du magnifique Centre culturel Stewart Hall à Pointe-Claire. Nous étions 80 Urban Sketchers à se regrouper pour peindre ou dessiner sur ces lieux et j’ai rencontré des personnes du Vermont, Texas, Toronto, la ville de Québec, le grand Montréal et Montréal! Un merci à Amanda Johnston et son équipe ainsi qu’à Shari Blaukopf pour faire la liaison et mettre ce beau projet à jour. Merci à vous tous qui êtes venus pour faire de cet événement un succès -)
