Plan Ahead for Summer!

To make the most of our all-too-brief summer, USk Seattle will be organizing more frequent sketch outings from June through August – we’re shooting for one per week! In general, the monthly Sunday outings will stick with the usual third Sunday (except to avoid conflicting with Father’s Day). Some of the second-and-fourth-Friday outings will switch to Saturdays to enable more sketchers to participate. Hope you can join us!

Outing locations and other details will be announced as soon as possible in the Google group, on the blog’s monthly outing page and this page. To help you plan, please mark these dates on your calendar, and then go find your shades and sunscreen! Happy sketching, everyone!

June 8 (Fri), 16 (Sat), 22 (Fri), 30 - Bainbridge Island (Sat)
July 8* (Sun), 13 (Fri), 15 (Sun), 27 (Fri)
Aug. 3 (Fri), 11 (Sat), 19 (Sun), 24 (Fri)

(*All start times are 10 a.m. except July 8, which will begin at 2:30 p.m. so that Virginia Hein’s workshop students can join us.)

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: 


  1. I would love to invite the Urban sketchers to an outing on the Long Beach Peninsula, so many things to see and do and sketch. To get in touch with me please email at Am thinking Sept or Oct would be great timing, fall weather is always pretty mellow and tourists are less invasive! I am a Art supply store, picture framer gallery in Long Beach and would love to get an active group going here. I have plenty of space for a workshop and would like to sponsor something for the locals to get a taste we have so many wonderful artists here. an the historical buildings, fishing community, the beach and lighthouses... so many things! Great food too! I sure where to post this so thought I would start here. Thanks for any directions you can give and please get in touch. Jean Nitzel... at The Picture Attic in Long Beach... 360 642-4770 Tues thru Sat open at 10.

  2. Darn, I would love to be there, but it is the same time as the Frye Art Lecture.
