This Saturday: Oregon Zoo with ASIFA

Mountain goat basking in the shade, entry plaza of Oregon Zoo.
What a busy summer! Our friends at ASIFA Portland have invited  the Urban Sketchers of Portland to join them this Saturday, August 24 at 10:30 am for a sketch-crawl at the Oregon Zoo. Great chance to meet some of the wonderful folks doing animation in this town and make new friends while sketching that adorable baby river otter...

The plan from ASIFA team is this:

"Bring whatever art supplies you desire, maybe a lunch, slap on some sunscreen, and we’ll share some art time. Please procure your own ticket and meet us just by the mountain goats at 10:30 (or just find everybody later, if you need to get there later). Everyone is welcome, so bring your friends! The more the merrier."

A note for those on a budget: Regular adult admission to the Oregon Zoo is $11.50. Some members of the Urban Sketchers group might have zoo memberships that they could use to get a friend in for free; we can try to coordinate this on the morning of the sketchcrawl if it's helpful. There are also a ton of lovely things to sketch for free in the larger park that surrounds the zoo property, so feel free to greet everyone at the mountain-goat plaza (no admission needed there) and then head towards to arboretum or the rose garden if you prefer! The zoo has pretty decent lunch food on offer but they are also very picnic-friendly, so feel free to pack your own lunch if you desire. (Just don't share it with the bears!)
