August 1 Friday Ad Hoc We're going to join the Whidbey Island Sketchers http://whidbeyislandsketchers.blogspot.com/ for their regular sketch outing. Note this time change! They start at 1pm. We will meet them at the Cloudstone Sculpture Park http://www.cloudstonesculpture.com/ The owner does not want the address or directions published on line. Thus you will have to email me for directions at mkbuike at comcast dot net (making the necessary changes to make it a real email address).
Car Pooling coordinated via the Google Group (see "Join Our Google Group" on the right hand margin of this blog). Some may want to go over early to sketch other locations.
In their discussion with us, Sue said, "You are also welcome to stay for happy hour. We are planning to bring picnic food and wine to share with our host after sketching, which is usually starts about 3:30 - 4pm." This, of course, would impact the South Lake Union Art Walk, if you are planning to also attend that.
August 1 South Lake Union Art Walk Between 5 and 8pm, the South Lake Union area will hold its Art Walk. Urban Sketchers has been invited to sketch in the area of the Cascade Park. This is the area with REI, St. Spiridon Orthodox Church, the Cascade P-Patch, and the streetcar turnaround point, as well as some great little places to eat. Peggy H will be sketching at the P-Patch, so that may be a good place to meet up.
