Ballard Sketch Team

Hattie's Hat Restaurant

A group of artists gather bi-monthly (1st and 3rd Tuesdays) at Hattie's Hat for a spirited session of co-inspiration.

No skill level required, Sketch Team is an opportunity to hang out in good company and make art in a friendly, supportive environment. Bounce ideas off your comrades, get and give some advice or just hang out and doodle.

Hattie's back room is all ages with full food and beverage service.

And the Team is awesome.
