Studying succulents

Succulents are plants that store water so they can live in dry places. The Succulence store in Bernal Heights assembles them in terrariums and vertical plantings and they've got a big table at the back of the store where we can sit down to sketch these bizarre and beautiful plants up close. (No purchase necessary.) Read more about the store at or see what people have done with them at

We can head over to the Progressive Grounds cafe next door for coffee or food afterwards.

Space is limited, so don't sign up unless you're pretty sure you can come. (If your plans change and you can't make it, please remember to change your RSVP on the meetup site.)


The 24 Divisadero bus goes right by there. You can also walk east up Cortland from any of the Mission Street buses, or walk a few blocks west from the 67 bus.

Bicycles have to get up a steep hill, but it's a short hill.

Parking is usually not too hard in this area.

    There are 10 places for sketchers to sit down at the table. The store has asked that we not block the aisles, so that people who are shopping can get at the plants. But I think standing up (or maybe sitting on steps at the back) is OK if you're careful to let people through. Or maybe if we have too many sketchers we can rotate people in from the benches in front.

    Great coffee and treats nearby at Liberty Cafe, in the back.

      We can check out the Liberty, but on weekends it's often impossible to get a table. They've also been sold out of pastries the last few times I've stopped by in the afternoon--getting too darn popular.

    This sounds great! Not far from me and I love drawing plants. As usual I will have to be on call for my mom but hopefully I will be free that morning. Miss you guys.
