Sketch Result of last September 24 at the National Museum

Another fun-filled sketching session has concluded at the National Art Gallery of National Museum. The building originally  housed the Philippine Republic's congress assembly. The architecture is of neo-classical in the 1930s. It was severely damaged during WWII but was restored later on. It is going through as major rehabilitation, and the entrance fee was waved during regular weekdays.

There were some 15 sketchers who attended, including 6-year-old Ampao. Burt volunteered to video record during the session and has ploaded the final cut on Youtube. Here is the link:
