After meeting Daniel Smith, four of us from Urban Sketchers Tacoma had a brief sketch outing in Georgetown.
This is a very funk, artsy neighborhood, south of Seattle. I’ve heard it described as the oldest neighborhood of Seattle. It’s my go-to place for urban sketching.
I chose the Trailer Park Mall as my subject. I’ve sketched there before but never on a Saturday when they were open. The weather was summer-like so many people were out and about and hanging out.
I was pleased to discover The Conservatory is finally open. I’ve walked by it for years, wondering if it ever was. The man in the cafe said they’d been open for 7 months. And I was delighted to learn they host a Drink and Draw! It is every other Sunday afternoon, 3-6pm, $10, long and short poses. Models are in costume.
Their website is nearly useless. The guy told me the Drink and Draws are posted to their Facebook page’s “Events” section. Click the “More” button to find the”Events” page.
