Join us for an extra special day of Urban Sketching as we participate in “Envision Saint Agnes” — a placemaking/artmaking event.
The “Envision Saint Agnes” project invites all creative thinkers, artists and art lovers to come out to the Saint Augustine’s University campus for a day of creating art and joy inspired by Saint Agnes Hospital. Put your crayons, cameras and creativity to work making art that envisions the past, present and future of this historic Raleigh landmark. For more information, visit raleighnc.gov and search Block Gallery/Artist Calls.
***Please note that the group will meet at St. Augustine’s campus (1315 Oakwood Ave, Raleigh) on April 8 instead of CAM.

ABOUT CAM RALEIGH URBAN SKETCHING
CAM Raleigh urban sketching is a group dedicated to sketching from direct observation in the trenches of the warehouse district. With so many changes happening around CAM Raleigh at lightning speed, we have spent the better part of many Saturday afternoons with a sketchbook in hand capturing the stories and beauty of the changing landscape. We are a diverse group of varied cultural and ethnic backgrounds who are truly sketchy at heart. During the sessions we often draw each other in action. Our mediums range from pencil, pen, pastels,watercolor, mud, coffee, or whatever unique medium we can think of. All of these sketches were done on location during the second Saturday of each month with the fantastic support of CAM Raleigh. We are a regional chapter of the international Urban Sketching community.

Our drawings are a record of time and place.
We are truthful to the scenes we witness.
We use any kind of media and cherish our individual styles.
