First Sketchbound Dubai meet-up!

World Community Arts Day 17th February 2014

Venue: The Archive, Dubai.

The first Sketchbound meeting in Dubai was a very enjoyable gathering. Dima from Lebanon, Samira from Brazil, Nora from Russia, Anita from Northern Ireland and I sat around the table at the heart of The Archive, exchanged stories and celebrated the art of sketching together surrounded by a library of wonderful books on art and culture in the Middle East.

  1. Brilliant drawings Alison and fellow sketchers! I can see why you chose the Archive as a venue, with all those books and visual inspiration. I see you are alternating venue for the next meet up and I am already intrigued to see if the type of sketches changes accordingly – well done on amazing work! From your long-distance fan 🙂 Alessandra

    • Hi Alessandra, thank you! We have a theme for our next meeting, ‘Maps’. I am looking forward to the next sketching meet-up to see how everyone interprets this theme. Hope all is very creative at Sketchbound Balbriggan!!
