Join the London Urban Sketchers for a sketchcrawl in and around the Trafalgar Square area on Saturday 23rd July. Meet at 11.00 am under the statue on the Fourth Plinth, on the top level of the Square. We'll meet up again at 1.00pm under the Duke of York Column, which is just off The Mall, near the ICA. Finally at 3.30pm, on the steps of St. Martin-in-the-Fields to take a look at the sketches from the day and take a group photograph. For those who have time to stay longer, we can move on the Crypt Cafe for coffee and chat.
This is an unashamedly 'London' sketchcrawl in the heart of the city! Lots of iconic buildings including Nelson's Column, Admiralty Arch, the National Gallery, Buckingham Palace, views of Big Ben and Whitehall. Lots of red buses taxis and tourists too. For those wanting something a little more tranquil, there is St. James Park, which if the weather is fine, would be great place for a picnic.
Being a central location there are plenty of cafes and places to eat. There are toilets in the Square itself, and also in the National Gallery and Portrait Gallery, both of which have free entry.
Free event, all abilities welcome, just bring your own art materials.
