Next Meetup

Guest Post: History Park San Jose, with Liz Steel and South Bay Sketchers
We will be sketching inside History Park, which has historical buildings, locomotives, an old fashioned gas station and candy store. Pasetta House, which currently houses the exhibit "Urban Sketches of Vintage Signs of San Jose" will be open. ( ) We will be joined for the afternoon by guest sketcher Liz Steel from Australia. 1:00 pm Meet at Pasetta House, and sketch around the park. 3:45 pm Meetup again at O’Brien’s Ice Cream Parlor and Candy Shop to look at everyone's sketches and perhaps grab an old fashioned sundae. In case of rain, we can sketch inside the open historical buildings, from the front porches of them, or in the candy store. Bring a stool to sit on if you don't like to sit on the pavement! The park is quite small so there is no real distance you need to walk. More about the park here: Please RSVP to help get an approximate count for the sketchcrawl. GETTING THERE: Pasetta House is located within History Park, SanJose, very close to the entrance of the park. You will see a sign for the exhibit, “Sign of the Times” and the gallery will be open for viewing when you arrive. History Park is at the intersection of Center Road and Phelan Road in San Jose. Keep driving down Phelan Road past the entrance of History Park and you will see a large parking lot with paid parking. You can also park on the streets around the park (unpaid, but scarce).

What we're about

We get together on weekends to wander around San Francisco, sketching people and places, natural and urban. We usually sketch for 2-3 hours, then sit down in a cafe to share sketches and chat. Sometimes we join up with other sketching groups or do field trips outside the city. Everyone welcome.
