Quebec’s Collectif mostly organizes life drawing and portraiture workshops, but it does, occasionally organize sketchcrawls. One such event took place last weekend when we all showed up at the Place Royale Information Center to sketch in its small museum.
This museum is mostly full of artifacts dug up during archeological exploration of Quebec’s old port area but the basement contains a couple rooms containing kitchen and bedroom furniture, as well as a large collection of traditional clothing. I’m a sucker for old wood and so I ended up there, where I sketched an old kitchen cabinet and a butter churn.
I took a short break and then turned my attention to a pre-digital age way of having fun, when imagination was the currency. I’d suggest I’m old enough to remember these but this one has wheels, which were invented about the time I was finishing up high school so that would be a lie.
We finished up the day comparing sketches over a nice lunch. It was a great day.
