Let's draw St. Pancras!

March’s sketchcrawl will be in and around the bustling St. Pancras/Kings Cross area of London. 
As well as the two stations themselves, with their mix of old and new architecture, there are a whole host of places nearby to draw - the historic Regent’s Canal with beautiful narrowboats, Granary Square with towering warehouses and shiny new Kings Place, a relatively new London cultural venue with a fabulous view of Battlebridge Basin, complete with houseboats and barges.  There is also a raised viewing platform overlooking Kings Cross Station which would make a great viewpoint for a panorama of the area.  

Meet at 11 am outside the old front entrance to St. Pancras Station.

Meet up again at 1 pm outside the entrance to Central Saint Martins in Granary Square.

Meet up at 3.30 pm on the back terrace at Kings Place to take a look at what everyone has been working on during the day.

I hope to see you on March 19th!
