A free sketching course for people who cannot draw (through twitter)

Well, I've sort of made the press again, in a very small way this time, but for a very fun reason.

My friends Monique (Monk) and Loes are the organizers of the Dutch Sketchcrawl in the city of Gouda and as you know I have attended this lovely event several times now and hope to attend coming january as well.
Anyway...they have now come up with the brilliant idea of offering a fun free drawing class on twitter. It's especially for people who think they cannot draw. To prove everybody wrong, the participants will get their sketching diploma up front! ;-)

For the Dutchies: here's a newspaper article about it (if you look very closely you'll see my name is mentioned too, oh my, I'm so famous right now, haha). The woman in the picture is Loes. She makes wonderful meticulous art, which you can see here. Monk you may already know from some of my previous posts, you can find her stuff here.

My friends wrote the prompts and tweets in Dutch, but they wanted an international version too and that's where I came in, because they have asked me to translate the tweets into english. Now I'm not a twitter person at all, so I will not really be a part of any further organization, but it was fun to see what they will put out there and I think many people will be inspired by it. So in short, this is a shameless piece of promotion for my two prolific friends. If you're interested you can join them at twitter over here. Enjoy!

  5. How fabulous Caatje... does sound like lots of fun... I, was one of those who thought I couldn't draw... and was amazed to realize that I could... so I just LOVE this idea...

  6. Wat een leuk initiatief! Lief van je, dat je de boel een beetje promoot!

  7. Very cool! I love Loes's handcarved stamps, as well as the way she styles them to take photos for Flickr.


I appreciate each and every comment. They make me really happy. I don't like spammers though and that's why the word verification is turned on. I know it's a pain, but I hope you understand.

I try to respond to all comments by directly replying in the comment section, but please understand that sometimes this may take some time. Know that I read them all and that they make my day.
