March Sketchwalk : The Green Corridor

This coming saturday, we will be walking through The Green Corridor. Alight at Commonwealth MRT Station and walk to the nearby Sheng Siong supermarket at 4PM SHARP. We will meet outside Sheng Siong, where the ATM cash machines are. Do not be late because we won't have time to wait and you might get lost. Visit the restroom before it begins. At 4:10PM we will walk to the entrance of the Green Corridor then turn left, following the direction in the map.

It might have rained in the morning, so it might be a little muddy. Bring track shoes and portable stools/something to sit on (or you will need to stand. No where to sit). Also bring mosquito repellant if mosquitoes are attracted to you.

Pace yourselves as this is a bit of a walk. But you will need to walk to fully enjoy this stretch of greenery. The scene changes as you walk so don't get stuck in one place for too long. By 5:30pm you should have passed the mid-point (a big highway bridge with an indian temple below it). There is only one straight path to take so you won't get lost. There are many exits if you want to venture out a little to explore and draw. But keep moving along the green corridor.

By 7PM SHARP meet at the end point (Jln Kilang Barat). Look out for the small dirt path exit. Be on time as it will get dark. The photo of the end point is below. We will have "show and tell" near the end point. From there, we can walk toward the main road. A few places to eat around there - Ikea, ABC brickworks food centre, De Burg hamburger place, as well as Bukit Merah Central (blk 120) food centre.

Do remember that this is a special sketchwalk timing so we can avoid the hot sun.
This saturday, sketchwalk is btw 4-7PM.

If you get lost, please call Andrew at 91070735. (But only if absolutely necessary, as I will be busy drawing too. Thank you for understanding.)

BACK UP PLAN: If somehow, it thunderstorms that afternoon, we will stay around Tanglin Halt area (around Commonwealth MRT Stn) from start to finish. It's a nice place to draw with lots of shelter. Bring an umbrella just in case.

There are no fees nor attendance taken. And all drawing skill levels are welcome. This sketchwalk (like all sketchwalks) are open to everyone. Anyone can join. All you have to do is show up on time.
