Details

Target sponsors a free day here on the 1st Sunday of each month. It will be crowded, but we should be able to squeeze ourselves into corners and do some sketching. This is a great chance to expand your artistic vocabulary, learning about styles and motifs from many different cultures.

If you want to see the famous Chinese Terracotta Warriors, that will cost $10. Consider coming early to spend some extra time with them before meeting up with the group.

We'll meet up at 4:00 to share sketches and chat at Lee's Sanwiches, 625 Larkin St (between Eddy St & Willow) about 3 blocks north of the museum. Their banh mi sandwiches aren't quite up to the Saigon Sandwich standard, but they have lots of other Vietnamese treats (including iced coffee) and plenty of seating. If you want to walk up there with the group, meet me on the front steps of the museum at 3:55.

PS - Note that the museum might not allow us to use wet media, so be sure to bring pens and pencils.

GETTING THERE

It a block away from Civic Center Station (BART and MUNI). Lots of buses run along Market Street near there, the 19 Polk goes right by it, and the Van Ness buses (47 and 49) are two blocks away.

Note that street parking is no longer free on Sunday afternoons, so if you're coming by car you'd be better off parking in the city parking garage under the Civic Center Plaza (entrance on McAllister, between Larkin and Polk) so you don't have to run out to feed the meter.
