The Burke Museum is offering Seattle Urban Sketchers a special group discount for our sketch outing on Sunday, March 15! The regular price for general admission is $10, but on that day, we’ll get in for half price -- $5! To take advantage of this deal, please identify yourself as an “Urban Sketcher” at the front desk and mention the half-price discount.  The staff will have the promotion in their log for the day, so they’ll be prepared to offer the discount.

Please note that pencils and colored pencils are allowed in the galleries, but paints are not.  We're checking on pens, so will update when we know more.  Also, you might want to scale down your sketch bag:  "Large bags are not allowed in the exhibit galleries. This includes large purses, backpacks, shopping bags, briefcases, large totes and baby bags."

Update 2/28:  Pens are not allowed; stools are allowed.

The Burke is home to an amazing variety of collections, from full-size skeletons of dinosaurs and other prehistoric animals to the original native American mask that inspired the Seahawks logo. The mammoth tusk that was discovered in Seattle last year is there, as are human artifacts from 17 cultures. Great stuff to sketch for everyone!

For those who don't want to pay the entry fee, there are interesting indoor and outdoor locations around the campus.
