Happy New Year!

Hi All.  Our next sketch out we will meet January 19th at the Starbucks near 12th and I-40.  This is across from the Indian Pueblo Cultural Center at 2400 12th St NW in Albuquerque.  We will meet at 10 AM and if the weather is not too cold, we can go outside on the patio and/or walk over to the Pueblo Cultural Center and sketch their building.  Or if it’s cold, we can just enjoy a hot beverage and sketch out the window.

Also, USK Albuquerque has a short feature in the Drawing Attention this month!  Here’s the link to the article: http://www.urbansketchers.org/2019/01/drawing-attention-january-2019.html

Let me know if you’ll be attending on the 19th.




Holiday Luncheon, December 1st 2018

Hi All.  We will be going to the Standard Diner again this year on Saturday, December 1st at 11 AM. They are located at 320 Central SE in Albuquerque and have again agreed to do separate checks, so cash or credit cards are fine.

Please let me know if you plan on attending since the restaurant would like to have a fairly accurate count.



Albuquerque Open Space Visitor’s Center, November 10th

Hi All.  Our next sketch outing will be November 10th at the Open Space Visitor’s Center at 6500 Coors Blvd NW.  We will meet at 10 and sketch till noon.  Also, I want to take a good group shot of everyone with their sketchbooks for the article in Drawing Attention. I’ve been working on getting our group featured in the online magazine and hopefully we will be in the December or January issue.

The Visitor’s Center is having their Festival celebrating the return of the cranes that day so it might be busy in the morning with lots of activities to sketch.  Their festival is from 9 to 5 Saturday.

Let me know if you plan on attending



Lunch in Cerrillos!

Hi All.   Anyone that would like to have lunch after sketching this weekend, we will be going to the Black Bird Saloon in Cerrillos.  Their menu looks great and they said that we can have separate checks.  So think about it.

Also, this Saturday is the 61st World Wide SketchCrawl.  So, we will be inadvertently participating in that event, too!


Village of Cerrillos NM, October 20, 2018

Our next sketch outing will be in Cerrillos NM on Saturday, October 20th.  We’ll meet at 10 AM on the corner of Main and 1st.  Main is the road from Highway 14 that goes in to the village.  If anyone is interested in carpooling, Donna has volunteered to organize it.  Please email her at kitsap_lady@yahoo.com if you are interested.  Let me know if you plan on attending.
