Adhoc Outings

Friday Sketchers ad hoc outings

If you are free Friday mornings between 10am and 12:30 pm, please join us.  We usually meet the 2nd and 4th Friday, though in the summer we plan to go out every Friday.  


Special ad hoc: Tuesday, March 20, 1 p.m.: cherry trees in Sunset Hill neighborhood

We’re planning a special ad hoc outing to sketch the cherry trees in a certain Sunset Hill neighborhood that becomes a fairyland at this time of year! It’s a quiet block of 33rd Ave. NW between NW 77th and NW 78th near Sunset Hill Park, where gnarled old cherries transform into spectacular pink clouds. (Please see map below.)

Due to the uncertainties of weather and peak blooms, we’ve had to schedule this with shorter notice than usual. We are starting at 1 p.m. in hopes of warmer temperatures. Please note that this is a residential area, so in case of sudden rain, there’s no shelter. The closest public restrooms are at Shilshole Marina, Golden Gardens, or businesses in the Greenwood neighborhood about a mile east. Hope to see you there!
