Beach Art Day! **save the date**

BEACH ART DAY!!

Art Potluck Fun Times

San Gregorio State Beach

ribbons it will be noticeable and not far from entrance!!

http://www.parks.ca.gov/?page_id=529


located TEN miles south of Half Moon Bay!   a bit of a drive, buts its an ART beach opposed to just a regular boring beach.   TONS of driftwood and rocks and shells for making cool sculptures, and its a super long beach for inspired walking.  I drove around to 10 different beaches scouting for us, and this was the best one.

This is a day for us to spend doing art at the beach.  We will spend some time wandering and looking for objects to create our own "sculpture" or found objects assortment and then doodle what we made back together as a group.  If people want to make a sand sculpture to draw, that is an option too.

This will be a "bring your own blanket" potluck fun time for the art group - bring your own stuff for you, but bring something to offer and share with people too

Lots of opportunities for alone time as well as group social hanging out fun!!!

they do have bathrooms at this site

Super Important Stuff:

PARKING FEE  $8bring cash!!!!

Be prepared to do some walking - I wouldn't bring a TON of stuff  ^_^  there is a direct route to the beach but it isn't a smooth pathway down so I discourage bringing coolers unless you really are fine with carrying it down to the beach.

I don't really recommend you wear flip flops, this beach has a lot of debris and uneven pathways, its more of sandals/sneaker beach but flip flops are good for later for strolling maybe.

mini-master checklist:

  • sketchbook
  • pens/pencils/sharpener/eraser
  • blanket (s)
  • pillow/chair
  • food/water
  • plastic baggie (for random things you find)
  • beach sculpture tools if you want to sand sculpt
  • layered clothing - who knows how the weather will be that day!!
  • sunglasses/hat
  • camera
  • ipod or whatever if you like music

I will have sunscreen if you forget, and a limited amount of other supplies!

Looking forward to seeing you all there!!!  Bring your friends if you want !!!   Just +1 +2 +3 in your RSVP as needed.
