Thanks to Maria, one of blog author of USK Japan blog, an international graduate student of Horticulture Department in Chiba University, energetic, skilled, with full of new idea, selflessly strived to make the first 4-day sketch event to happen in Japan in collaboration with Urban Sketchers executive board members, Professor Kinoshita from Chiba University, at Matsudo local community building where she lives and manages, and University lecture hall as well.( I also thank her partner who also helped a lot in may ways!)

Day 1, Feb 9th (Friday)
This day, an Executive Board member Richard Alomar, AKA New York Sketcher, gave us sketch drill from 13:00〜15:00. Participants were to make quick sketches of following 3 types of visual records in a page that is divided into three parts:
1, description with words ( annotation, remark, words, how you feel, what you see, etc)
2, partial detail that you find important or interesting in the scene you see.
3, not detailed but whole image of the view from your view point.

And each must be done within three minutes!
(It was like being forced to eat certain amount of food in such short time, no sufficient time to test or chew, no water, but swallow anyway... That was my first impression. ) It is also hard to hold sketchbook while standing and sketching in a cold temperature in such rush and that make it difficult to control your line quality. However this is quite effective method in terms of seeing things, concentrate on capturing the essence of the environment without destructed by too many information, and to remember/ understand the location as mental records. We made various records in such short time, This was quite an experience to learn what a quick sketch can be used as a tool ( this means not like hang on the wall type of art but memo for yourself or communication tool for viewers) . Later we discussed what we felt through the workshop. I myself find it new fun way to learn where you are, to learn the community, and also it can be a good exercise since we keep walking or standing. We even called this as sketcercise. I love it.
