This is a relatively new group and we have many people new to Urban Sketchers (USk). So today was designed to give a lot of information about both the group and how we do what we do!
Even with directions, it takes practice to recognize the right driveway. Frances took care of that!
Rom was in charge of getting all the cars parked in the drive. He got them all in and with a plan so the ones who needed to leave early could get out!
Darcie made name tags
After introductions and housekeeping announcements, I (Kate) led the Internet Tour for Urban Sketchers. One of our tenets is "we share on-line". There is so much to see and learn! This is one of the studio rooms set up with a large monitor.
During lunch, we had a "What's-in-your-bag" sharing.
We also had a sharing table with art supplies to give away or sell. Darcie brought is very cleverly designed custom sketch bags. "As seen on the Urban Sketchers blog".
Those attending said they had a good time and learned a lot. I enjoyed it myself.
We're doing it all over again on February 21, 2015. See more on the USk Tacoma ad hoc page.
