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.”

“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.

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.”
