It’s time again for #OneWeek100People! March 6-10, 2023!

February 15, 2023

I’ve just seen Punxsutawney Charlotte, our first spider of the year, which mean’s spring is coming to Montreal!

What am I talking about?

It’s time to return to street sketching! Or – at least sketching in the museums, subways and Montreal’s underground city. Whatever warmish places I can find to practice my drawing, and warm up my watercolor skills – which have gone dormant over the winter.

#OneWeek100People is a free annual event launched by myself, and my sketching friend Liz Steel back in 2017. Every year we invite sketchers from all around the world gather and doodle people. You can read more about it on my event page [ HERE ] or head over to the Facebook group and join up. If you don’t like Facebook, that’s perfectly fine, just use the hashtag on your social media of choice.

There are very few rules, and only a lot of encouragement to draw people any way you can. Pen or pencil, watercolor or digital. From real life, or from photos – all that we care about it that we’re having fun practicing the elusive art of sketching people – together!

I hope you’ll join us for this, the SEVENTH YEAR of #OneWeek100People!

      Sorry, we did not happen to do that this year. I have to be honest, it was Liz Steel that got us organized to do that :) I’m notoriously lazy about these sort of things! Thing is- – the list from last year is probably all I could come up with! Trying to make a list that everyone could actually achieve? (even say, cold weather countries like Canada :) So I think it might have been a one trick pony :) If you come up with something please do let me know, I’d be happy to share it out!

    I absolutely love taking craft classes! There’s something so satisfying about learning a new skill and creating something beautiful with your own hands. Whether it’s knitting, painting, or pottery, I always come away from a craft class feeling inspired and energized. Plus, it’s a great way to meet new people who share your interests. I highly recommend trying out a craft class if you haven’t already!
