July Sketchwalk at Chinatown

Hot on the heels of the USk10x10SG workshop series is our monthly sketchwalk, this time at Chinatown!

Get ready to put to practice what you've learned — especially food sketching — as The 50 Cents Fest 2019 will be happening as well! If you're tired of drawing buildings, grab some yummies and fill your tummies. Oops... We meant sketchbooks!

9:30 AM
Chinatown Complex Food Centre Blk 335
steps outside at the corner of Sago Street and Trengganu Street

12:15 PM
Same as meeting point above

Nearest MRT stations: Chinatown (NEL), Outram Park (EWL), Telok Ayer (DTL)

Unsure of where to begin? Pop by the Chinatown Visitor Centre and grab a brochure, or visit the Chinatown Heritage Centre, then hunt for The Tintin Shop (SINGAPORE) — no sketching inside the shop, though.

Explore the area and sketch the gentlemen playing chess outside the Buddha Tooth Relic Temple, or the mosque and Hindu and Buddhist temples along South Bridge Road.

There's something for everyone at Chinatown.

Locations to sketch:
- Chinatown Food Street aka Smith Street
- Mosque Street
- Pagoda Street
- Temple Street
- Buddha Tooth Relic Temple and Museum 佛牙寺
- Sri Mariamman Temple, Singapore
- Masjid Jamae (chulia)
- The 50 Cents Fest 2019 from 11 AM

Places to eat and shop:
- more food options at the eateries and at Chinatown Hawker Centre
- almost anywhere and everywhere you look
