Lonsdale Quay, this Sunday

Lonsdale Quay is right at the North Vancouver end of the seabus, and has a Granville-Island-type inside market, boats, waterfront, views of Vancouver and lots of people to draw, and good inside or covered places to draw if it's rainy (which it never is on the North Shore). We can meet on the walkway/dock directly under the Very Big Q - you can't miss it!

    The Quay is a little busy, and some people stopped by to appreciate our sketches. The weather is cool, and it would be better to have some sunlight. :)

    Looking forward to seeing you all. If you get there late, I'll be somewhere near the Q, and I'll have a bright purple shirt and a sketchbook - should be easy to spot!

    Hello everyone!
    I would love to come say hello to you all... I am a beginner's beginner and have never sketched, let alone in public! As I say... I have a serious back ground in doodling!!! So not sure where to start with it all!
    Thanks Dave for picking one of my favorite locations... I live very close by and although I am very new to the City, Lonsdale Quay is almost a daily walk for me...
    See you all at 1:00

    Thank you for organizing this event, I'm also new (very new!) to the group and able to join tomorrow. I look forward to meeting you all and dusting off my pencils after a too-long hiatus from drawing. Cheers! - Aicha

    The Q is easy to find. It is on a tower on the water side of the Quay facing downtown. There is a big open square with a fountain in the middle. Ask anyone and they will direct you....well don't ask a tourist ;) See you there.

    Great that so many people can make it! If you're driving, there's free parking on weekends in the parkade on the north end of the Quay building.

    And thank you for organizing this event! Thank you Sigrid for introducing me to this group. I've been searching for the Vancouver sketchers for a long time, and it's finally found...in February! :D

    Hello! I'm new to this group. I'm free to join the meet-up tomorrow afternoon. I've never been to Lonsdale Quay before...I'm not sure where the big Q is. Is it easy to find? I'm taking transit there.

    Thanks for organizing us Dave. I haven't attended recently so am looking forward to it!

    I actually have never made it over to Lonsdale Quay, although it is on my list of things to do. What a great way to get me over there.

    Darn, I am away for two weeks, this is a great location to go sketching, good one Dave. See everyone when I get back.

  • Sigrid

    Dave, you're a star! Thanks for setting this up. As we all know, sketchers have to be kept busy, or else they might start knitting instead. Happy sketching, everyone, and a great long weekend.

I'm surprised by the level of growth I've seen since becoming an organizer, it's given me more confidence in my abilities.
