July Sketch Outing  Saturday, July 11th and Sunday July 12th:

 Pacific Northwest Regional Sketch Outing

On July 11, 2015, Tacoma USk will host the other Urban Sketching groups from around the Pacific Northwest.  The last such outing was organized by Seattle USk and held in Tacoma in July 2012.  (If you'd like to see images from that outing, go here.)

We will meet at 10 am in the amphitheater of the Washington State History Museum.  
 1911 Pacific Ave, Tacoma, WA 98402

Go through this arch and the amphitheater is behind.

We'll return there at 12:30 for sharing.   

Just in that area there are many sketch venues.  One might also ride the free Light Rail (see link below) up and down for many other historic down town views.  


The Light Rail Stop is Union Station. 

1.   for a fee at two lots next to and behind/below the Washington State Historical Museum.  Take the free light rail further up the line.
2.  for Free in the garage across the street from Freighthouse Square (name change coming to  "Freighthouse Station")   and then take the free Light Rail 

There are many restaurants in the area for lunch.  If there is interest, we can have an afternoon session and meet for another sketchbook sharing session. 

Wait, There's More

July 12th:   Georgetown Garden Walk. 
The Garden Walk is a free self guided tour.  Maps will be available on the day of the Walk at the Georgetown branch of the Bank of America parking lot located at 1112 South Bailey St, Seattle, WA 98108.   Meet there at 10:00.
