Let's sketch together! Let's have fun!!

SKETBE is a Society of Artists (Visual Arts) based in Thessaloniki and Northern Greece.
For the past three years, we have set the last Sunday of May as "Sketching Day".
In 2009, artists and friends of the Arts gathered near White Tower, Thessaloniki and sketched all day. A great event!
In 2010, we organized lectures and talks and then sketched together in the Cultural Centre of Thessaloniki.
In 2011 we sketched in the "Water Park" in Thessaloniki. We also organized lectures on the various purposes and uses of sketching.
Now, in 2012, we plan to have a sketching day without boundaries.
We would love to sketch together with artists from all over the world.
Mark your calendars. Last Sunday of May. May 27th. 
Let's go and sketch outside, en plein air.
Send us an email with a photo of your sketch, along with your name, country, and details about your sketch.
Your sketch will be posted in this blog:
So... don't forget.
Sunday, May 27th. Sketch something, take a photo of your sketch (or scan it) and email it to us (...and mail it to us!)
( Leave the rest to SKETBE...

Be sure to check out the e-exhibit from Sketching Day by SKETBE, the Artists' Association of Northern Greece.

Many mail artists' sketches and drawings are on display, digitally :-)

Another announcement:

If you will be sketching on May 27 and wanting to email the image / images...

there is no problem if you are in Japan, Australia, Fiji Island, Bali, and Europe to South Africa...

BUT if you are in the USA, Canada, South America...better to sketch on May 26 and send it in

while we are sleeping in Greece, so when we wake on May 27th , your sketch will be on the blogspot :-)

Me thinks the blogspot will be projected during the sketching event, so we want to see your sketches from 'round the world!!
