    c.50 people came to draw London on a very hot and sunny day on Saturday 26th May

    Come and join us for a sketch crawl around the historic Temple and Fleet Street area of London! We will spend the day exploring and sketching, in groups or individually (as you prefer), before meeting up at the end to look at each others' sketchbooks. You need to bring something to draw with and on in the media of your choice plus something to sit on (if you want one).  Maps will be provided at the start - but it's wise to bring a street map with you for this part of London.
