Ad hoc Outings

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


December 1: PCAF event for World Aids Day
 Star Center, 3873 S 66th St, Tacoma WA 98409

Pierce County Aids Foundation (PCAF) is having a special 30th anniversary celebration event (and World AIDS Day observance) on Friday Dec. 1 from 6- 9 pm at the Star Center in Tacoma.

We sketched at their event last year and they would like us to attend again.  The lobby will be filled with many historical art projects and archives for people to peruse before and after a formal program around 7 pm.  There should be ample and varied scenes to sketch.

Most interaction will be during the reception / mingling from 6-7, and the formal program from 7-8 might be a good time as well. After that, is just more mingling, and people should feel free to leave when they need to.

Important: Please register for the event:
Be sure to register at this link:  While we will be there doing a service, PCAF will provide us food and beverages if you wish. Registering will help them with the count for the caterers.

Ad Hoc, Saturday, December 2: Gage Drawing Jam

Gage Academy of Art
1501 10th Ave E, Seattle, WA 98102

Meet at 9am.  Find us in line or in the auditorium.  Get there by at least 8am for best parking options.  

Cost: $15/person, available at the door (kids 15 and under get in FREE).  Or get your ticket online at the link above.   Entrance free includes all sorts of drawing opportunities with models and still life.  Also a wide variety of drawing materials are provided at no cost from several well known suppliers. 

Feel free to sketch what you want, but what we share to Urban Sketchers on-line would be sketches of the larger scenes, capturing the environment of the event.  Remember, posed models and still life do not fit Urban Sketchers guidelines.  But we've enjoyed the Drawing Jam for the past couple years!


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.

Seattle USk's "Friday Sketchers" ad hoc outings:   In Seattle a small group goes out on Friday mornings between 10am and 12:30pm.  They meet the 2nd and 4th Fridays.

For more information about these outings, see the listing on the Seattle blog Ad hoc page.
