Thurs, June 20: Impromptu Sketchcrawl and Brainstorming!

Join us this Thursday, June 20 for an informal gathering to brainstorm about where to go sketching this coming summer and fall, followed by some early evening sketching in the Pearl District.

  • 5:30 to 6 pm: Brainstorming session at Sisters Coffee Company, 1235 NW Marshall St. (near 12th Ave). We'll bat around ideas on where to sketch over the next few months. If you know of any neat events or scenic spots in the area, be prepared to share! And it's always great to strategically move around through different sections of the city, so be thinking in terms of NW, NE, SW, SE, North Portland, Downtown, as well as local suburbs...
  • 6 pm: We'll mosey over to Tanner Springs Park, on NW Marshall between 10th and 11th Ave. This fascinating public park re-creates a historic wetland in the middle of the city, and has creatively re-used all sorts of materials that allude to the complex history of the area in the design of the park. (Giant wall made of rail-road tracks, anyone?) Stay as long as you like--sun should set around 9 pm, but you might get hungry before that...
