Marking the current nationwide 14-day social distancing policy to constrain COVID-19, Urban Sketchers Hanoi launches the special challenge of drawing sketch paintings themed “NCOVI” in 14 days as an effort to join hands with the community in the fight against the Covid-19 epidemic.
The challenge is open for everyone. Each day, participants can send paintings of any material and size to the photo album on the Hanoi Urban Sketch Facebook page.
Those sketches show a different Hanoi in recent days when the situation of medical staff wearing protective gear rushing to move patients into an ambulance, a doctor waves from the negative pressure room or the scenes of quarantine zones.
