Third Wednesday, June 20:  Annie Wright School 

827 North Tacoma Avenue, Tacoma, WA 98403

It's been 3 years since we first sketched at this school. One of our members teaches there and generously arranged for us to have access.  Meet at the front door.  There is free street parking.  Our Host will have visitor stickers for us. 


Annie Wright was named “The Most Beautiful Private High School in Washington” by Architectural Digest in April.
Here are links to the announcement on the AW website and at architectural digest:

A big change from last time is that construction has begun in two areas of the campus. A new pool and gym will be constructed in the space between the existing gym and soccer field in back, and a new separate building for the AW Upper School for Boys is being constructed in the space east of the Cottage, toward the Tacoma Lawn Tennis Club. 

 

Lots of photos from the previous outing
