This group is for anyone who wants to sketch urban and natural environments. It's a fun way to connect with other sketchers. We will meet monthly on a weekend at a specified location to draw urban life in the South San Francisco Bay area.  Locations will include historic sites, special events, coffee shops, museums, local parks and gardens, and street-side views. After drawing for a set time, we will gather back at the starting location to share our work with the group. Our intent is to maintain a positive environment for our growth as artists. All skill levels are welcome. 

Drawing on-location is both challenging and rewarding. Although instruction is not offered, your host will offer tips when pertinent. Participants will be encouraged to share what they have learned about techniques and materials. If you have questions, please message me on our web page.

Bring your favorite drawing media, including traditional media such as pen, pencil, markers, watercolor, watercolor pencils, pastel pencils, etc.  Digital tools, such as the computer tablet, are welcome. Experimentation is encouraged!
