Ad hoc Outings

An Ad hoc outing is a sketch outing other than our usual monthly one.   

Invitation to sketch in private garden:

Frances Buckmaster invites USK Tacoma members to her studio and garden which will be 'open for indoor or outdoor sketching/painting/perusing the art books in the studio.  Contact her by email for the address  fbuckmas at ix.netcom dot com  (make the necessary changes to turn it a real email address).

Open house begins at 10 am on the following dates:
July 23, 30; August 6, 13, and 20th.

She encourages folks to wear their name tags at these ad hoc outings, so we all get to know each other. It takes all of us awhile to absorb the batches of new names of folks coming to our Urban Sketcher outings!

Sketchers/painters are welcome to stay all afternoon until individual projects are completed. Bring a bag lunch if you come early. She will have coffee/tea/cold water/maybe iced tea for beverages to share on site.

 Parking Day - September 15th

Park(ing) Day is an international event in which artists, citizens, and businesses will temporarily transform a metered parking spot into temporary public space. Park(ing) Day’s mission is to call attention to the need for more urban open space, generate discussion and debate around how public space is utilized, and to improve the quality of urban habitat.

We'll set up between 9 and 10 am.  Our park will be open from 10 am to  2pm.  Location has not yet been assigned so watch this space for an update.  

We'll have tables, as above in the photo.  Bring chairs and your sketching kits.  We'll be talking about Urban Sketching with the people who visit our park.  

 September 23  Van Lierop Garden Market

1020 Ryan Ave, Sumner, WA 98390

We've been invited to sketch during an event at the Garden Market in conjunction with the wine walk. It is a delightful space where we've sketched before. The event is 3pm to 7pm. 



In addition to any outings  planned by Tacoma Urban Sketchers, we are also invited to go up to join in outings hosted by Urban Sketchers- Seattle: 

Seattle Urban Sketchers' regular monthly outing is usually the 3rd Sunday.

For all the details, see the information on the Seattle blog.
