August Sketch Crawls

Normally we have our sketch crawls on the 3rd Saturday of the month.  But this month, Tacoma is having a great event, and that's nearby.  So let's postpone the Portland Sketch Crawl till the 4th Saturday.  See below.

Join us in August, 2016, in another fabulous west coast city, Tacoma, Washington, for the fourth in a series of annual west coast urban sketchers sketch crawl events. We have been in the San Francisco Bay Area, Portland, and San Diego over the past three summers, and this coming summer we offer up Tacoma, the second largest urban area in the state of Washington. Tacoma offers an historically and architecturally rich downtown area that cries out for the sketcher/artist to pay it homage, and we are excited about sharing that opportunity with the global urbansketcher community.

Because we offer no workshops or demonstrations, these annual west coast events are FREE. Each is designed for simply a few days of pure sketching in another of our fabulous west coast cities with others who share the same passions about sketching in urban environments.

  1. I'll miss the gang this month and next month. Off to England for a 3 week tour. I did see Vicky and Jason on YouTube. The guy from Singapore, I think, posted daily summaries of the Symposium. I watched them all. Looked like fun even though the weather wasn't the greatest.
