Guest Post: Lake Merritt Draws! Sketching the Lake's New & Historic Attractions

Here's what it says on the Oakland Library website:

Come and meet the Urban Sketchers SF Bay Area at the Main Library. Representatives from local community organizations will discuss Lake highlights, including the Lake revitalization project, historical and architectural landmarks, urban sketching, outdoor sketching tips and art materials. Sketchbooks, drawings and paintings by Urban Sketchers will be on display throughout the library the entire month of July.

This event is part of the 1ST Annual West Coast Urban Sketchers’ Sketchcrawl! For more information see http://wcuskskcrawl.blogspot.com and http://tinyurl.com/Sketch-Oakland.

I don't think there will be any actual sketching at this event. However, people who want to head over early and do some sketching could meet up at the Lake Chalet on the pier that extends out into the lake. If you'd like to do this, write something in the discussion section below.

Note that although this is not an official SF Sketchers meetup, Laurie Wigham of SF Sketchers will be one of the speakers (talking about what to put in your sketching kit.)

    Hi Laurie: I really enjoyed your presentation and loved your Baggalini bag. I went on their website and didn't see it, though. Can you tell me anything that would help me find it?

      Do a search on Amazon. The last time I looked they had the Messenger bag at a substantial discount, although some colors were quite a bit cheaper than others.

      Hi Laurie, excellent presentation on urban sketching tools! Would it be alright with you if I shared a link to your presentation on the Monterey Drawing & Painting Group site? Full credit due of course...

    • Laurie W.

      Yes, you are welcome to share the link. Thanks for asking.

    I really enjoyed this presentation. And very much looking forward to Sunday sketching this weekend, on Bastille Day.

    My trip from SF to Oak during the strike took 4 X longer than usual. If pickets are up I will not be attending
