USK Meetup at Starbucks

Nine sketchers met at Starbucks (Hilldale Target). 

 With the large windows overlooking University Ave there was a variety of scenes to sketch.

If you are interested in drawing musicians you might want to check out Bach Around the Clock. The event runs from 10 am to 10 pm on March 10th at St. Andrew's Episcopal Church on Regent St. Thank you Gretchen for letting us know about this event.

USK February Meetup at Olbrich Gardens

It was certainly cold outside on Sunday, but warm inside Olbrich Gardens on the east side of Madison, Wisconsin. Seven sketchers happily took advantage and produced some interesting sketches.

Dave, Becky and Jeanie joined us for the first time - please come back!

We all remarked about the variety of what we saw....

Everyone but me smartly went into the observatory, I stayed out in the common area. I had decided to contrast my frozen deck that morning with the plant I found by the bench I was sitting on.

Next up, Starbucks in Target on the Westside at Hilldale. The advantage is, you can pick up your groceries after you're done sketching!
Stay tuned for more events as we begin to think of warmer weather...outside again.
Stay creative,

Urban Sketchers News for February: Drawing Attention

Here's the link for the monthly news for Urban Sketchers.  The format was changed a couple months ago and can be read online as a magazine.  Very cool.  And there is a segment from NBC Nightly News featuring a USK group in Syracuse, NY.
