Yasmin: Second Ningbo Local Drawing Circle June 2016

Our second sketcher, Yasmin Morgan has just completed her sketchbook turn. This young girl has been residing in Ningbo for almost three years and has a good eye for shapes and colours. I hope you enjoy these as much as I do.

We still have slots if you keen on contributing to this second year running’s drawing circle. Get in touch and look through what previous sketchers have done here. Stay tuned for the first year exhibition.

Bye for now.

Ningbo Local Drawing Circle: Exhibition venue

Good news about the exhibition. After months of searching, we finally found this amazing place, in downtown Ningbo. The first year’s drawing circle‘s materials will be re-produced and exhibited, sometime in September 2016 when people is back from their summer break (including myself). Stay tuned for the opening party, and if you are keen on helping me please do let me know.  Thank you Qingqing and Amy (the owner) for touring me and Ema around. The space is undergoing a face lift and will be opened in a few days time.

I hope the first year’s sketchers and the on-going second year’s can exchange some experience. It will also be open for public, more of a get together event (with the beer garden!).

Interested on joining the second year? Contact me through Wechat (id: miatedjosaputro) or click on the Contact page. Do you want to see how does the circle work? A short video of the first book (of two) of the first circle can be found here.

Hiya, happy new year! Oh wow, it is the 2016. Where has the time gone? I do love this season, from one festival (Christmas-New Year) to the Spring Festival (another new year!).
