Why are you interested in joining the Vancouver Urban Sketchers?

I became interested in painting when I saw a neighbour out with his oil paints when the family was at a cottage when I was twelve. That looked like a great idea. I always have a sketch book or small paint set with me whether on holidays, back on the prairies in Saskatchewan or in Vancouver. I often try to include a figure in the drawing. I really enjoy visiting with people who stop to say "Hello". I think it would be fun to share ideas with others who are out doing some sketching and painting too.

Please tell us a little bit about yourself, your interests, your background — whatever you are willing to tell.

I am a retired teacher from Saskatchewan. (shop,art,maths,etc) Besides art I am interested in music - playing the piano and in getting outside to be active running and swimming,etc.


I am a retired teacher from Saskatchewan. I look forward to visiting and sharing ideas with the Sketcher's group.

What Brian B. is saying about this Meetup Group

The sketch group is great to get me out to new places to try a quick watercolour and to learn from the others.
