Sketchers – let's travel online - drawing and painting holiday traditions around the world. The last month of the year is a “world of holidays“ from America to Scandinavia to the Far East, people celebrating holidays with special rituals and festivities for Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, Boxing Day, Christmas, Omisoka and many others.
This year’s holiday celebrations might feel a little deja vu or simply reliving last year’s socially distant get togethers. Across the world many popular traditions have been upended, including Europe’s annual Christmas markets. We can still keep the holiday cheer alive this season by learning about some of the world’s most unique holiday traditions around the world.
NYC Urban Sketchers is hosting a “Free Virtual Holiday Sketch Event”. Slip on an ugly Christmas sweater, or holiday socks. Don a holiday hat or spruce up your creating space with a little holiday cheer or just come as you are!
Ten o’clock, Eastern Standard Time, we will kick off our virtual party with sketching “Holiday’s Around the World Celebration.” At noon, we will share all of our works of art and take a holiday photo. Then we will take a 15 minute break. After that sketchers will sit down to share a virtual holiday meal. But don’t rush off! The fun is just beginning! The NYC Urban Sketchers online team has planned fun activities for all of us to enjoy! Mark your Calendar! Don’t be late! Let’s make our virtual holiday sketch party an event to remember!
There are no fees. All skill levels are welcome.
