  2. 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.

  3. Has any decision yet been made on the Japanese Garden outing? Thanks!

    1. Hi Amanda! This Friday is a good possibility -- this week's forecast looks good. We'll post on the Google group as soon as we decide. Thanks for your interest!

  4. I am planning on coming, but I have a question about what is allowed in the Museum. Can we bring stools, or is there seating that would allow good views of the exhibits? Are paints allowed?
