Taranaki sketchcrawl in New Plymouth

A model of a pre-historic shark (Megalodon) is suspended in the air as hungry visitors eat lunch.
One more week until my presentation on urban sketching at Puke Ariki. Since I haven't really been drawing tons lately, here is a post featuring a couple from my archives that didn't make the blogs. (I guess this is a B-Side Sketch post.) These two are of the museum/library that is currently hosting an art show of nearly 100 local artists called 'Homework: Taranaki art Now'. I was lucky enough to be selected and am organising a sketchcrawl on Saturday, the 16th of August at 1.30pm to 3.00pm. It starts with an introduction and slideshow and then after that, everyone goes out drawing. At 3, there will be a display and sketchbook swap so if you're interested, bring your sketchbooks and whatever art medium you prefer. 
The Mobile Library, in the back of Puke Ariki. It's a bus that travels around and stops at strategic places for readers to take out books from a rotating on-board selection. Stops usually included locations out-of-the-way and near retirement homes. A local school lost their library in a fire and that is another temporary stop until a new one is built.
