About the Event
Join sketch artist extrodinaire, MJ Ernst, for a community sketchcrawl during this year’s Pumpkinfest! All skill levels are welcome to join. Meet us at 10:00am at Montague's Farmers Market to chat about urban sketching and then head out on your own (or with friends) to sketch the fest. We’ll meet back at 12:45pm to check out each other’s work and take a group picture.
Please register! This event is free, but those who register will have a chance to win one of 3 FREE sketch kits. You must be present at the start of the event to win (10am, @ Montague's Farmers Market).
We will also be selling sketchbooks to those who need them for $5. You can reserve a sketchbook when you register, and pay either online or at the event. We have a limited supply of sketchbooks, so reserve yours today! If you decide to not pre-order a sketchbook, please feel free to bring any type of mark-making tool with paper, journals etc. This event is to learn the joy of making a line and is not considered a competition.
MJ Ernst grew up in West Michigan and has been sketching her whole life. She owns and operates a custom dress shop in the Chicago area. She uses all types of mediums in her artwork. Ink , especially solubles, is her preferred choice for quick sketching. MJ is an Administrator for Urban Sketchers Chicago, which is a chapter of the global group Urban Sketchers . The main guidelines for urban sketching is that the artwork is created on location and not from referencing photographs. She likes using the term Sketching from Life as many of her sketch subjects are not urban. Her sketch style is whimsical and impressionistic.
When visiting family in the West Michigan area you may see her out sketching local people and sites . MJ encourages anyone, all skill levels, to pick up a pen, pencil or brush to get started and make a mark!
Please go to @MysteriousMannequin on Facebook and Instagram to see her artwork
