Canadian Pacific Northwest

Nature's majesty in full coastline view.

The Canadian Pacific Northwest is home to some of the country’s most spectacular coastline views of nature.  "Canada’s Pacific coast is more than 27,200 km long, all within British Columbia. Coastal landscapes range from low-lying deltas to mountainous fjords. The Pacific Ocean watershed extends east from the BC coast to the Rocky Mountains, and north from the American border into Yukon...Today, approximately 3.5 million Canadians live in Canada’s Pacific coastal region. Major communities include Metro Vancouver, Victoria and Nanaimo. Vancouver, Prince Rupert and Kitimat are among the region’s major ports. The Port of Prince Rupert is North America’s closest port to Asia and Canada’s third-busiest port." (History: Canada's Pacific Region)

All Virtual New York Urban Sketchers events are one session (10 am -12:30 pm EDT) held on Saturdays. For participants wanting to challenge themselves sketching more of a particular locality or theme, you are welcome to do the EXTENSION SKETCH PROJECT below:

Canadian Pacific Northwest Extension Sketch Project:
Choose of the following prompt to sketch:
  • (a)  Quadra Island Lighthouse
  • (b)  Mountain Range in Banff
  • (c)  Regional Wildlife
  • (d)  Totem Pole in Duncan
*Please post your finished sketches to the USk NYC Facebook site. Be sure to add the hash tag #NUS. Please also note that while we are sponsored by USk NYC, our online event is grounded on reference images, which is a very different approach from doing the in-person, on-site urban sketch event promoted by the Urban Sketchers Manifesto.
