Second Thursday, February 14: Harbor Teak
Harbor Teak

Third Wednesday, February 20: Seymour Conservatory in Wright Park  

Wright Park Conservatory

316 South G Street, Tacoma, WA 98405

We’ll meet in front of the Conservatory at 10:00 AM.  Limited parking is available on the circle in front of the conservatory, otherwise there is ample parking on the streets surrounding the park.

There is a suggested donation of $3.

Wright Park is 27 acres of arboretum, ponds, play/spray grounds and botanical gardens surrounded by some fine old neighborhood architecture… plenty of interesting sketch sites.  In case of rain, we will be able to sketch in the Conservatory where there are lots of strange plants. 

The rest rooms are somewhat of a hike away though, over by the play/sprayground

At 12:30 PM we’ll regroup for sketch sharing and photos, followed by lunch at the Hob Nob Restaurant across from the white lions’ entrance to the park at 716 S. 6th Avenue for those who wish to stay for lunch.
