Sketchcrawl on Sat, Jan 18: Mississippi neighborhood

Join us on Saturday, Jan 18, to explore another corner of Portland! The Urban Sketchers will meet in North Portland's Mississippi neighborhood (near where N Mississippi Avenue intersects N Fremont Street.)

The entrance of the ReBuilding Center, which is sculpted like a 3-D forest, could be super fun to draw, and there are lots of neat little cafes and shops and cute houses all through that neighborhood in general. According to this article, It's a neighborhood that is "vibrant and full of young people...Mississippi Avenue in North Portland is one of those pockets of Portland that has gone from grungy to trendy in a relatively short time."

Gather at 10 am at Muddy's Coffeeshop, located at 3560 N. Mississippi, ( and then share sketches at 12:30. (Weather looks promising so far--a nice eventually-sunny winter day!)
