Elsie and I met this week to discuss future sketching venues and please always feel free to suggest any that appeal to you. We are also engaged in doing some community outreach to get the word out that Madison has its very own urban sketching group and how much fun it is.
We also discussed the idea of sometimes having our monthly sketching date on a Saturday. I noticed that this is what the Urban Sketchers Chicago group does. Some venues are open on Saturdays that are not open on Sundays and it may appeal to sketchers who are often busy on Sundays. I'll send an email to the group about this but please feel free to add any comments here also. We thought it might be fun to do a Saturday morning sketch date and have lunch after for anyone who would enjoy that.
We are also hoping to be guests on a local radio program or two to get the word out about how much fun can be had for the price of a pencil and a sketchbook. Stay tuned and happy sketching!!

By Elizabeth. Nice that you joined us for the first time!
Three of us gathered inside the botanical
gardens for sketching. It was a lively place. Some came for the fine art show. Others just wanted a place to get out of the cold. Some stopped and inquired
about our Draw Madison group.
We meet the second Sunday of each month (not December) at various places
around Madison. Any degree of experience with a pen, pencil, ink, pastels or paints is a pre-requisite.
The most important element is that you enjoy sketching. Join us next month!

On Valentines Day Draw: Madison will meet at Olbrich Gardens for sketching from 1-3pm. The conservatory is usually the most popular place to sketch as there are benches, beautiful plants and birds and the warmth is greatly appreciated this time of year. Admission to the garden center and gardens is free but a $2 admission fee is charged to enter the conservatory. A fine art and craft sale sponsored by the Madison Weavers Guild is also in the garden center that afternoon.
