Thank you!


I just want to take a moment here to thank the people who really made the Symposium a fabulous event: the participants.

You were the ones who made it all possible. Without you, there wouldn't have been a Symposium and I, fellow board members at Urban Sketchers, instructors and PNCA staffers would still be submerged in Google spreadsheets. Your energy, enthusiasm and passion for drawing on location created a great atmosphere of camaraderie that allowed everyone to learn and have fun. So don't forget to thank yourselves for the great experience!

I also want to express my gratitude one more time to our wonderful sponsors Moleskine, Canson, Faber-Castell, Art Media and Legion Paper. I had packed all my sketching gear, as you probably did, but their gifts of sketchbooks and art supplies gave us a perfect excuse to try new things, experimenting with new paper and new tools. I learned a lot from that.

After three intense days, I only regret not having the chance to talk to everyone. That's why, like Don McNulty said in his post, I didn't want it to end!

But let's just say that it doesn't have to end, does it? While we can't sketch together until we meet next time, we can continue sharing and learning together online, here at the Symposium blog, at the Urban Sketchers site and sister flickr group, and on our own individual blogs and flickr galleries.

So let's continue the experience and hope we'll get a chance to sketch together again soon.

Keep sketching and keep posting!

P.S. I don't know how long it will take me, but I will scan the wonderful drawings you gave me during the closing reception and post them here eventually. Thank you for that wonderful gift. It's priceless!
