Last Sketchwalk of the year at Orchard Road

For the last sketchwalk of 2017, we will be sketching the Christmas lighting at Orchard Road! This will be an EVENING sketchwalk.

Once lined with fruit orchard and spice plantations, Orchard Road was developed into Singapore's premier shopping district ( Every Christmas, the stretch is decorated with Christmas lights and decor with malls trying to outdo each other in creating the festive spirit.

Our location this year will be the junction of Grange Road and Orchard Road, which is surrounded by many sketchable areas and vantage points. Quaint old Emerald Hill is just round the corner and a couple of old houses sit opposite Heeren along Cairnhill Road. Or sketch from the bridge spanning Orchard Gateway. Mandarin Gallery, 313, Centrepoint, Paragon are all within walking distance. Or head to the rooftop of Orchard Central for a birds-eye view of the shopping district. Remember to bring your own light if you plan to sketch in the dark!
