Friday Ad Hoc:  October 14:  Columbia City

Meet at the Columbia City Bakery at 10 am

There is a new PCC market location in Columbia City.  While the area is changing, there are still many older buildings as it
is a designated historic district.  In case of rain, there are several coffee houses and other spots from which to sketch. There is an historic cinema.  A couple blocks north on Rainier Ave. is the Columbia Branch Library (near the north side entrance to PCC) which is a Carnegie library and on the National Register of Historic Places.

Parking, etc:  There is street parking.  There is an inexpensive lot off Rainier Ave:
Turn east on S. Ferdinant St (coming from the North on Rainier, that's a left turn).  Parking lot half a block up on the right with cheap rates but it's cash only (put bills in the slot).  3900 S Ferdinand, Seattle, WA

Alternatively, there is a Light Rail stop at Columbia City (4818 Martin Luther King Jr Way S., Seattle).  It's a half mile walk to Rainier and our main sketching area.

  1. Any sketchers want to go out to the nature area between Duvall and Carnation? There is a wonderful large Nature area that would be a great place for plein air or sketching. i am interested in going but don't drive so was wondering if a group might like to go and we could have lunch in Duval or Carnation. Looking for a group outing, the sooner the better! This weekend would be great weather permitting.

    1. I don't know if you got any replies to this request. You might consider joining our Google Groups - see link in right column of our blog - that way you can send our an email to the group.
      Also, send me an email: janewingfield at gmail dot com with specifics of your suggested location - especially meeting/parking spots. We don't usually go to rural locations. The exception has been a pumpkin farm. But it could possibly happen.

  2. I don't see any calendar events for June. Anyone interested in sketching together this weekend with a beginner?

    1. I don't think I've seen this before today (three months later). You might consider joining our Google Groups - see link in right column of our blog - that way you can send our an email to the group.
