But not so, as I have been supremely lucky...
Lots of the Urban Sketchers international correspondents, including me, submitted workshop ideas for possible inclusion in the 2012 symposium. Last week, I had the really exciting news that mine has been chosen. Which means that, come July, I get to go to Santo Domingo to lead the session! My workshop idea is called 'Quick on the Draw' and will feature tips and techniques for speed-sketching.
Only limited details have been announced so far, but the dates of the symposium are 12th - 14th July. If you are interested to find out more, you can register for email updates on the sidebar of the symposium announcement.
