April 2011 - History

Saturday - April 30th: The "509 Urban Sketchers and Painters," met at the corner of Dayton and Kennewick Ave to record the old Methodist church downtown. After a tour of the building and viewing the stained-glass windows from the inside, we settled outside on the sidewalks and went to work. Afterwards we headed over to the Ice Harbor Brewery for a great lunch and sharing of our work. To see the pictures from today, click the link above.

Wednesday - April 27th: "Last Wednesday Workshop." Four artists, Nancy, Greg, Dave and Jim, came into the "Space" this evening for a fun-filled evening of drawing and painting a couple of still lifes. As usual, Dave provided the music and the conversation was lively and fun. There was plenty of room for others to join us and we hope that maybe those of you who haven't tried the "Space" yet will do so soon...

Saturday - April 23rd: Figure Drawing with Jessica. Though our numbers were low today (it's hard to compete with ol' Mr. Sun!), we had a lot of fun drawing with Jessica today. Find the pics here.

Saturday - April 16th: The "31st World-Wide Sketchcrawl" - For a rather cold and definitely blustery day, we had seven artists join us for the SketchCrawl which started in Howard Amon Park, then moved to the ParkWay, and then on to Uptown Richland. The event was photographed and posted at the forums, located here.

Saturday - April 9th: The urbansketchers was cancelled due to the proximity of this date to next Saturday's World-Wide SketchCrawl.

April 2nd: Figure Drawing - Thank you to Laura G for taking the lead on this session. As it turned out, she and John F were the only two who were able to be there as this was a busy day elsewhere for so many of our patrons. William modeled.
