Urban Sketchers Chicago is excited to announce Canson’s sponsorship of the 2016 Sketch Seminar! We were introduced to Canson through a recent addition to our group, Ed Brickler, Canson’s Director of Consumer Education and Outreach. While introducing and welcoming Ed to our group, he expressed an interest in participating in this year’s Seminar, and the rest was history. Not only will Ed lead workshop #8 Art Materials Lecture, he has also facilitated Canson’s sponsorship of a variety of art supplies to the Seminar, including art boards for workshop #7 Urban Sketching in Oil Paint, paper for workshop #10 Coptic Bookbinding as well as a variety of other products participants will receive at the event. Many thanks to Ed, and to Canson for their generous support!
