May - History

Saturday: May 28th - Urban Sketchers and Painters

We met at 10am in Columbia Park this morning at 10, talked art for a while, then laid out our plans and went to work sketching the trees, the river, some of the people, and the sno-cone vendor.

The weather gods smiled down on us today with warm weather and blue skies for another great outing. Check out the pics at this link, or click the pic in the left-hand margin labeled May 28, 2011.

What great practise and such great folks, with common interests, to hang out with for a few hours.

Saturday: May 21st - "Ballerina"

The "509 Artspacers" enjoyed a very special session today with an 18 year old ballerina from the Mid-Columbia Ballet as a model.

Kaileigh will graduate high school in a few days and begin her college studies at UNLV in Las Vegas next year where she will study dance.

This summer she will spend a couple of weeks at the Radio City Music Hall in New York City in a workshop format with the Rockettes.

Saturday: May 14th - "Sketching the Old Tower"
Facing cold, gray and wet weather this morning, seven artists charged ahead and met with Malin Bergstrom of "Bergstrom Aircraft" who provided escort onto an area of the tarmac unavailable to the general public where we spent a few hours sketching and having a fun-filled time.

Saturday: May 7th - Figure Drawing at the "Space"
Only two were here today, Nancy and Jim; and the model, William. We had a good time, but cut the time to two hours rather than three due to the model expenses. Thanks to William for graciously accepting the modification in his time and pay.
