Inaugural Southwestern Ontario Get-Together (December 2022)

Date(s) - 12/03/2022
1:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Covent Garden Market
Corner of Talbot St. and Covent Market Place - London, Ontario

Join us for our inaugural Southwestern Ontario get-together AND sketch and scrawl! This is a TWO-PART event, and everyone is invited to join in with either or both parts.

At 1:00 pm, let’s gather the Covent Garden Market in downtown London for some festive sketching during the Holiday Market (kids visiting Santa’s house, horse-drawn carriages, vendor huts, etc.). Bundle up, bring whatever supplies you like, and meet us at the corner of Talbot St. and Covent Market Place (this is the NW corner of the market square). We can head inside if it’s too chilly.

By 3:00 pm, we will have made our way down the street to the Central Branch of the London Public Library (251 Dundas St.), where we can warm up and talk shop. Join us in the “Reading Lounge,” which is visible through the glass walls after walking in the front doors from Dundas. Turn left at the main circulation desk. Covered beverages are allowed inside.

Parking can be found under both the market building and the library (Citi Plaza).
