USk Tacoma invites Seattle:
Urban Sketchers Tacoma Monthly outing is the 1st Saturday at 10am.
Our monthly outings are the 1st Saturday of each month. We start at 10:00am, disperse to sketch and then meet up again at 12:30pm to share our sketches and have a photo.
January's sketch outing will be at the Meeker Mansion in Puyallup on January 3, 2015.
312 Spring Street, Puyallup, WA 98372
They will still be fully decorated for Christmas, as they don't take all of that down until Jan. 5th.
Meet at 10 am at the mansion.
There is an entry fee of $5 per person. Please come prepared with cash as Kate or Frances will be collecting from sketchers to then pay for the whole group.
After we're done with sharing our sketches and the group photo at 12:30, they'll be serving us hot cider and cookies as part of that fee.
There is lots of free parking on the property or nearby.
Historic Meeker Mansion, on the National Register of Historic homes, is a 17 room Italianate Victorian Mansion. Eliza Jane Meeker, wife of Ezra Meeker (Hops king of the Puyallup Valley and a founder of Puyallup) was tired of more primitive living, and after a trip to Europe decided to have this house built. It took 3 years to build and was finished in 1890.
