Mr. Lee Jeong-sun, staff of the museum
Yesterday it was very cold to the -13 degrees. But the museum were fulled with visitors including kids, students and their parents during winter vacation season. while we were sketching we met a young staff who showed interest in art. We provided him pieces of paper to draw if he could. He brought three pieces when the sketching ended. We felt glad to meet Mr. Lee Jeong-sun. It may be one of the reasons why we sketch outdoor. We explore the wish-to-be artists on the spots. We wish him to keep sketching from time to time.
Participants : family of Kim Mi-kyung, Yun Young-sook, Lee Yong-hwan, Lee Jeong-sun, Yoo Byung-hwa
Thank you all!

The National Museum of Korea is located about 1.5 km away from Yongsan Station. It is the largest museum in Korea and houses precious Korean cultural assets that tell the story of Korea’s fascinating history, from ancient times to the modern era. The architectural style harmoniously blends traditional and contemporary styles. It was built to house more than 140,000 national relics and artifacts, and also to serve as a complex cultural facility with a sculpture garden, open plaza and outdoor exhibition area. Also, artificial falls, streams, and green fields have been cultivated to create a beautifully landscaped space for visitors.
Last Saturday, in celebration of the 46th World Wide SketchCrawl, we Seoul usk members met at this magnificent museum and had a good sketch time.There were so many sketching objects that I couldn't help drawing busily in and out of the museum despite the cold wind. Nevertheless, it was informative and very interesting work to me.
