3rd Saturday Sketch Crawl - Cherry Blossoms on the Waterfront


This is a re-run of last year's Cherry Blossom sketching at Tom McCall Waterfront Park. Hopefully the cherry blossoms won't be already gone by then, but even if they are, we will still have Ankeny Fountain, Saturday Market, and Old Town/Chinatown nearby.
  • 10:00am - Meet at Floyd's Coffee (118 NW Couch St.) for coffee, snacks, and socializing.
  • 10:30am - Sketch along the waterfront around the Japanese American Historical Plaza (near the intersection of Couch and Naito) from 10-noon. 
  • 12:00noon - Optional lunch at Old Town Pizza (226 NW Davis St.) If it's warm and dry enough we can grab food from the Saturday Market, and meet/eat outside by the Japanese American Historical Plaza.

Let's check out the Zipper on NE Sandy.  This building was just finished in September.  It has:
* a place to gather indoors
* a firepit outdoors (maybe only lit at night though)
* a variety of eating/coffee/drinking establishments to choose from
* a nail salon
* nearby interesting architecture and neighborhoods
  • 10:00am - Meet at Kerns Kitchen (2935 NE Glisan St) for coffee, snacks, and socializing.
  • 10:30am - Sketch buildings, people, or tuck into the neighborhood and draw some residential gardens from 10:30-noon. 
  • 12:00noon - Optional lunch and sketchbook sharing at the Zipper, 2705 NE Sandy.
 If you know a better nearby coffee shop, let me know.  Kerns Kitchen seems kind of like a sit-down restaurant but at least it has a lot of tables outside.
