Drawing the world since 2011
Hello! I'm Candace Rose Rardon, I'm a professional sketch artist and storyteller, and I'm here to help you connect with the world through art:
Welcome to our global community and monthly sketching challenge, when we put our passion for art into practice.
This is where I share weekly stories, sketching tips, and personal moments of connection with the world.

I would love for our first Moment Sketchers manifesto to be something that we all create together and can then share with others, conveying the heart, goals, and vision of our community in a single image.
Our November Moment Sketchers challenge brought two very different but equally colorful seasons together, and resulted in a collection of sketches bursting with bright, vivid color — thank you for taking part!
As honored as I was to receive the news about the Lowell Thomas Awards, the reason I feel most compelled to share it with you here is because I have *you* to thank for the path Moment Sketchers has taken this year.
Meet the Moment Sketchers community
“I struggle to put into words how Moment Sketchers has already impacted my life — because how can one measure the serendipity of human connection? Sixteen pages into my first watercolor journal ever, travel sketching continues to gift me with memorable moments — even after the sketching is complete.”- Rebecca, humanist & writer, USA
“When I’m traveling, I often wonder if I’ve really seen all those places stored on my camera’s SD card — if I really experienced them. This is what I enjoy about sketching so much and what makes Moment Sketchers so precious: feeling the pulse of a scene, the soul of a moment – and creating a memory which lasts.- Jens, archaeologist, Germany
“Joining Moment Sketchers has opened up a love that I had forgotten and put aside for many years. There is wonderful support within this group of new friends worldwide; this is a magical environment and Candace is very generous with her invaluable knowledge, watercolor advice, and videos.”- Victoria, designer, Australia
