또 한번의 스케치 모임안내 :

몇 년 전부터 호주 시드니에서 서울로 오시면 서울 멤버들과 스케치를 해오시던 스테판 콮씨가 소식을 주셨어요.
9월 6일, 토요일(Sept. 6th, Saturday)에 이화여대(Ewha University) 본관 근처 옛 아름뜰(Areumtteul restaurant)앞 쉼터에서 만나 스케치하고 이화여대 내의 ECC(Ewha Campus Complex) 푸드 코트에서 식사도 하면 좋겠습니다. 옛 아름뜰은 지난 6월 말로 영업 종료하고 새로운 업소가 공사중이라는군요. 저희가 가는 날 영업을 하게 되면 좋겠구요.

늘 하던대로 10시 반에 만나기로 하겠습니다.
8월 말에 도착하시고 9월 10일까지 머무시니 그 사이에 또 스케치 계획이 확정되면 알려드리겠습니다.
많은 참여 바랍니다.

This Memorial Park was prepared in memory of Son gi-jeong (1914 -2002) who was the gold medalist in 11th Berlin olympic marathons establishing a new world record on 1936. Therefore Son gi-jeong became the first gold medal-winning Korean Olympian, so he continued to have his pride as a Korean until his last days. 
He was born in Sinuiju, and was educated at Yangchung High School with a history of 100 years in Seoul. Some time ago the school was relocated to Yahgchon-gu, and the site was transformed into Son gi-jeong Memorial Park. Recently, before the 100th anniversary of his birth, Son's Memorial Hall building with red bricks is under remodeling for better than ever. 
Last Saturday I visited the Memorial Park with our USK Seoul sketchers.  While sketching, I looked back upon the history of 1930s and his outstanding achievement in enhancing the national prestige.

Thanks. Son gi-jeong is praised as one of the greatest heroes in modern Korean history. I sketched statues of Son respectfully as if he is alive.
