Cancelled Urban Sketchers Events

Hi All,  Sorry to announce that we are cancelling our next two outings (April 4th and April 25th) due to the recommendations of no groups larger than 10 people.  It’s better that we be safe in this uncertain time.  We will hopefully start back up in May but we’ll send out another notice to confirm.

Stay Safe! and keep sketching by yourself or with a friend (6 feet away!)


Albuquerque Civic Plaza 10/19/2019

Change of schedule!  The Coronado National Monument had a special event going on October 19th and there would be 600 to 1000 people there!  So, I changed the meeting place to the Downtown Albuquerque Civic Plaza.  We will meet on the 3rd street side in front of the Convention Center at 10 AM and sketch till Noon. Maybe we’ll try to go to Coronado Monument next year.  I know several of you requested that we go there.

Let me know if you’ll be attending:

Robinson Park 08/17/2019

Our next sketch out will be at Robinson Park at 8th and Central in Downtown Albuquerque.  They have a Grower’s Market every Saturday in the summer so there will be lots of activity.  We’ll meet on the corner of 8th and Central at 10 AM and Sketch till Noon.

There is paid parking meters on the street. And between 8th and 9th and Silver and Gold there is free on street parking.  And between 6th and 7th on Central, there is a paid parking lot.  Here’s a link to a parking map:

Sandia Crest, 7/27/2019

Our next outing will be to the top of the Sandia Crest.  I encourage everyone to try and car pool.  We will meet in front of the Crest House Saturday, July 27th at 10 AM and sketch till noon.  There are observation decks, easy hiking trails, a restaurant, and an observation room inside the Crest House.  It should be a nice reprieve from the heat and a lot of fun.

Take I-40 east from Albuquerque.

Use Exit 175 to NM 14 north for 6 miles.

Turn left and follow Highway 536 Sandia Crest National Scenic Byway for 14 miles to the summit and Sandia Crest House.
