Ottawa Alley Project Recap


Artist/illustrator Colin White conceptualized an Ottawa "Alley Project" after leading an Ottawa Jane's Walk  called "Illustrating Change on Bank St." with Liam Mooney.

In early summer, Colin organized group sketching sessions that were both supportive and social. These sessions have become, for me, a welcomed weekly sketching evening in the company of some incredibly talented Ottawa artists.

Below is a brief recap of some of the places we have sketched, some of the tweets we shared and some scans of sketches in my art journal.
