Leadership is always interested in suggestions for venues to sketch. We are also looking into occasional events during the week.
Starting Thursday, April 27, the early morning sketchers will be meeting at Guadalupe Fun Rubber Stamps at 114 Don Gaspar Avenue, Santa Fe. We gather at 8:00 AM and promptly head to wherever we decide to sketch. If you are late, we will leave a note as to where you can find us. Hope to see some of you there
Yesterday, a beautiful spring day at the Albuquerque Zoo where 18 of us gathered to sketch. We welcomed new members Jane Marceau, Zeke Browning, and Karen Pittman. Also joining us from the Chicago Urban Sketchers was Shelley Rees.
Our next sketch-out is on May 6th in Madrid. Please check the posting for details. Thank you to Jay Leutwyler for stepping up to help with the blog.
I would love to post pictures BUT WordPress isn’t allowing me to. I’ve tried at least 9 times throughout the past 24 hours to post picture obviously without luck. If someone has a solution please email me at email@example.com
