Urban Sketchers Montreal in La Presse

Well this is pretty exciting. There’s a big feature article about Urban Sketchers Montreal in the travel section of La Presse this weekend. The print edition has a double-page spread with lots of great sketches and a terrific article about our group with great tips for sketching around Montreal.


The La Presse+ app has lots more features, but of course you’ll need to download the app to see them. You’ll see Marc Holmes’s great sketch of some typical Montreal buildings.


As well, there’s a section that features our favourite sketching spots in Montreal.


There’s also a section with profiles of different cities where there are big chapters of Urban Sketchers.


And then there’s a really cool interactive page with all our materials. When you click on the buttons, you’ll find tips about sketching using pen, pencil, ink and watercolour.
