Next Sketch Outing

Upcoming Sketch Outings

Friday, June 24:  Fremont

We’re trying out a new weekday meetup time with the hope that some sketchers may be able to get away and join us for a lunch break sketch. Meet at 11:30 am at the PCC market in Fremont for optional lunch and sketching at PCC. We'll be settled at the outdoor seating area. 

Or sketch in the neighborhood and join the throwdown at 2:30 pm in front of the statue of Lenin.  There is so much to sketch at the Center of the Universe! The Troll, Lenin, the rocket, JP Patches, Waiting for the Interurban.

PCC Fremont store:
600 North 34th Street, Seattle, WA 98103
There is free underground parking

Lenin Statue:
3526 Fremont Pl N, Seattle, WA 98103

Attention Google Group E-mail Subscribers

Some Google email group members are still occasionally finding our emails in their spam folders. Please go into your spam folder options and choose “never block” mail from
urbansketchers-seattle@googlegroups.com . We are also experiencing occasional problems with our emails not going out at all or only to some members. It’s frustrating and annoying, but we don’t know how to resolve it. Hopefully we’ll soon be able to go back to having a standing meeting day, at least through the summer! Thanks for bearing with us as we continue to schedule outings on short notice!

    1. We schedule at least one outing per month on a weekend (usually the third Sunday of the month) and at least one on a Friday. In the warmer weather months, we usually meet several times a month.

    1. Hi Sandee! We're all eager to sketch together again! We are following Gov. Inslee's requirements for organizations to resume meetings. Currently King Co. is in modified phase 1, which limits social gatherings to 5 or fewer people outdoors.

  4. Hello fellow sketchers
    Is anyone sketching in downtown Seattle these days? I go to the Market and stay outdoors and it seems to work fine. Please let me know if you are starting up again. Stay Well

    1. Hi Susan! We're all eager to sketch together again! We follow Gov. Inslee's requirements for meetings. The limit for our type of organization is still 5 or fewer people outdoors. Since we have no way to limit the number of people who might show up at a sketch outing, we are still not organizing any official outings. But you are welcome to invite 4 or fewer friends for an outdoor gathering while maintaining social distance and following other safety protocols. Stay safe and happy sketching!

    3. Hi Susan! We are still following the state's requirements for "recreational" gatherings, which are currently restricted to 15 people from no more than 2 households. We are as eager to sketch again as a group as you are! Thanks for your patience, and happy sketching!

    1. Hi Susan! We don't have it scheduled yet... we are playing it by ear this month so that we can meet outdoors and will likely announce on short notice based on the weather. The best way to be informed is to get on our Google mailing list, which I think you are already on...?
