MOHAI Sketcher in Residence

Today was my day to be at the MOHAI as an Urban Sketcher in Residence.  I spent the morning viewing many of the exhibits at the museum.  This was my first time to go in all the galleries since their move from the Montlake location and I am very impressed with the quality of all the rooms! 
Look forward to many, many future visits.
 
 My first demonstration sketch looking out the window towards Queen Anne Hill.

 
 
The afternoon was spent in Gabi's wonderful exhibition demonstrating my sketching techniques.  It was a fun experience talking to many interested visitors  and the kids were a joy to see their enthusiasm in drawing their own sketches.

 
Later I went out and watched the Seattle Hip-Hop demonstrations
that were a special part of today's events and also sketched in the exhibitions of things from my childhood.
 
 
 
 
I saw the Lombardy Trophy at the Seahawks parade and so I decided to find / sketch the first Seattle World Championship Trophy that is on display at the MOHAI!  Maybe the Lombardy will join the Sonic's trophy at the museum???
 
 
 At the end of the day I went outside to view the historic fishing schooners that were docked alongside the museum.  The Vansee and the Polaris are two of the oldest working schooners that will soon head to Alaska for the upcoming fishing season.   Worth a visit to see these wonderful ships before they leave.
