Social Sketching: Columns & COCKTAILS

Night Sketching at the Lincoln Memorial

Saturday, September 9th

Lincoln Memorial

Meet at the Hive Bar

Columns & Coffee is a monthly social sketching excursion led by the L’Enfants, the emerging architects branch of the ICAA-WMA. Anyone with an interest in sketching and/or connecting with other artists and architects is encouraged to attend.

This month, we will be visiting the Lincoln Memorial. Since one of the best ways to view the Memorial is at night, we will be doing evening, white-on-black sketches. Participants will have the opportunity to try a unique drawing technique, focusing on light as opposed to shadows and line-work.

White pencils and black paper will be provided.

We will meet at the Hive Bar at Hotel Hive (2224 F ST NW) for a cocktail before walking to the Memorial. We will be sketching for about 2.5-3 hours, but people are welcome to come and go as they please.

RSVP to Anthony DiManno
