August 19 Sketchcrawl - Jamison Square

sketch by Andrea

Let's go to Jamison Square this time.  There aren't any big hulking trees there, but there are enough smaller ones to provide shade.  And buildings and art and people, and likely kids playing in the fountain.

For coffee and food, Lovejoy Bakers is a block away, at Lovejoy and 10th, with loads of other coffee shops and restaurants in the surrounding blocks.  

All streetcars stop at the park, with the 17, the 77 and the north end of the bus mall just a few blocks away.

  • 10am: Meet at the north edge of the park, where Kearney would be if the street went through.
  • 10:30-ish: sketch
  • Meet again, probably back at the meeting place, for an optional throw-down.

July 22 sketchcrawl - Laurelhurst Park

sketch by Deb Rossi

sketch by Vicky Porter

This sketchcrawl will be delayed one week from our usual day and be on July 22nd.

It's looking like July might be a hot one.  So let's meet at Laurelhurst Park, where big trees will provide shade if we want it.

There's a variety of things to sketch there (people, dogs, ducks, trees, lake, pickle ball, little skate park, basketball) and a restroom, with a coffee shop (Oblique Coffee Roasters) a few blocks away, at SE Stark and 30th Pl.

  • 10 am: Meet on the patio between the restrooms and the lake
  • 10:30-ish: sketch
  • Noon: Meet again at the patio, or picnic tables, for an optional sketchbook throwdown.
  • 12:30-ish:  Optional picnic lunch and sketchbook sharing.

The 75 and 20 buses have stops quite near the park, and the 15 isn't too far away.
