Thursday was the first full day of the Urban Sketching Symposium, and it was quite full! The workshops were the first to start, 12 in all.
Lynne Chapman's Afraid of Color? workshop
Fred Lynch's Capturing Intangibles workshop
Kalina Wilson taking João Catarino's Reflections First of All workshop
Stephanie Bower's 180 Degrees workshop
Isis Chaulon taking Paul Heaston's Wide Angle Perspectives and Little Blank Pages workshop
Soon after, the Activities began...
Richard Alomar captured one of the best photos in Symposium history!
Ricardo Inke leading a sketching tour of Paraty
Xing Chen's lecture Neuroscience and Art
Ivonesyo Ramos leads his demonstration, Paraty Lamps
The Sketchwalks were the last to begin, as participants got a leisurely start to their sketching day.
Though everyone was engaged in different activities, all were there for the same purpose - to meet, sketch and share. There was plenty of that going on as well.
