Next sketching outing is on Monday 3 April

Our Next Sketching Day will be on Monday 3 April, when we will be going to Covent Garden Market. We will meet at 11am outside the portico of St Paul's church, also known as 'The Actors' Church, Covent Garden, which is the big unmissable church built by Inigo Jones on the western side of the square. The nearest tube station is Covent Garden (Piccadily Line) but Leicester Square (Northern Line) is not very far away.

Some people may want to establish themselves with their stools and their sketchbooks in the area outside St Paul's drawing either the gorgeous St Paul's or the covered market place, with its lovely pillars and nineteenth century iron worked arcades. Others may want to go inside the market (particularly if wet) and find a corner to do interior market views.

We are hoping that there may be musicians in the lower parts of the market, or there may be assorted performance artists outside in the Plaza. In any case, there will be lots of people, some sitting at the restaurants both indoors and outdoors. This is a location with multiple artistic possibilities.  

We will gather at lunchtime and find a suitable café. Sue's telephone number is 07975 864142 if you arrive and cannot find anyone! We suggest you bring your sketching stool to avoid being restricted by the locations of café chairs.
