Friday, Aug. 31: Queen Anne library and environs
Although not a classic Carnegie library, the Queen Anne branch of Seattle Public Library still holds its own as a stately presence. Across the street in either direction, the Masonic Lodge and the Queen Anne United Methodist Church offer more architectural challenges. And a block away is the old Queen Anne school, which was converted into a condo complex. Many beautiful, unique residences also stand in this quiet area. Meet at the library's front entrance. Free parking on neighborhood streets. (The library is closed on Fridays, but we are feeling optimistic that we won’t need its shelter.)
Many thanks to Kathleen Keckler for the photos and for scouting this location.

Summer is over 😕
Alas, the calendar says summer is nearly over. This concludes our nearly-weekly summer outings for USk Seattle. In September we'll resume our mostly normal schedule: Third Sundays for the main monthly outings; second and fourth Fridays for ad hocs. However, we often make exceptions for good sketching opportunities and special events, so always check the blog and Facebook events for updates.
USk Tacoma invites Seattle:
Urban Sketchers Tacoma Monthly outing is the 1st Saturday at 10am. There is also a regular 3rd Wednesday outing. And more.... Schedules can be found here:
