sketchcrawl plans


Well, the weather is not supposed to be great, but a small contingent of us plan to participate in the second worldwide sketchcrawl on Sunday, March 6th.

We will start at noon at the Kiva Han coffee shop in Oakland (corner of Craig and Forbes) and see who turns up. Our plan is to go across the street to the Carnegie Museums, where one entry fee will let you into both the art and natural history museum. I don't know if I want to try to draw the ancient taxidermy of lions attacking an Arab courier on horseback--but there are always the dinosaur bones and lots of less gory exhibits. On the art side, The Carnegie International is still up, so there is great contemporary art to sketch, and good people watching too.

Later in the afternoon we may walk over to Phipps Conservatory (again, an entrance fee) and draw lots of green plants and pretend we are someplace warmer or drier than western Pennsylvania in early March.

Join us!


I'm on the EM list and live in buffalo but my husband lives in Pittsburgh. He usually comes here on the weekend but I occasionally come to pitt- if you'll let me know the next time you plan a sketchcrawl I'll try to join you. Cheers- love your site.

Thanks, Dana.

I will be sure to let you know. Or just let me know sometime when you are in town, and we can schedule a local sketchcrawl of our own!
