April's Wednesday sketch outing

This will be the second of our regular Wednesday sketch outings on April 15.  Come spend what might be a stressful tax day in the relaxing environment of the botanical conservatory!

W.W. Seymour Botanical Conservatory 

316 South G St., Tacoma, Wa  98405
In Wright Park
(253) 591-5330

We'll meet at 10 am just outside the Conservatory (or just inside if it's raining).  The Conservatory opens at 10 so early arrivals could sketch outside while waiting.   Pen, watercolor and stools are alright.  They ask that we just don't block the path for other visitors.  Darsie Beck has a previous commitment, so Kate Buike will be the host.

Admission is free but there is a suggested donation of $3 which helps offset the cost of the floral display plants.

Update 3/25: Media allowed:  We may use any sort of ink pens (pens with self-contained ink, not dip pens), graphite, watercolor pencils/wax-based colored pencils, and water-brushes with watercolor. We're not to use open containers of liquids (water, solvent or ink). In case anyone wishes to use oils, and with the restriction on open containers, please wipe brushes clean, and 'properly' clean them for storage later.

If you want to sit,  it's best to bring a small sketcher's-stool if you have one.

Of course, we are asked not to obstruct any pathways or views of other visitors.


PARKING OPTIONS:
along the semi-circular drive directly in front of the building itself

first come/first serve parallel parking on South G and other surrounding streets
