My Calander reading skills are slipping!

Hey everybody,

I apologize for the confusion about our next Sketch Crawl! Someone just pointed out that I mistakenly mentioned the date for the next Sketch Crawl being on December the 8th...when the first Saturday of the month is THIS Saturday. So...in case you have been lead astray by my previous post...

...Our next Sketch Crawl is this Saturday!

We'll meet at the DCA Marketing Suite as usual and then we'll head over to Tower City to sketch. There are so many awesome things to draw inside that complex. The holiday decorations are up and the crowds will be down for shopping. It will be a fun atmosphere. Feel free to shop too!

I will say this...while the official times for the sketch crawl are from 10-12noon...the city is open to anything you want. Anyone is free to continue sketching through the areas we explore each month. This event is more about exploration anyway! I hop you can make it down this month...we look forward to having an even bigger turn out! See you on Saturday.

Crawling Through Playhouse Square

The second Cleveland Sketch Crawl took place in the Theaters of Playhouse Square. I have to say...this was a cool location. I have been in some of those theaters before, but i have not seen them from that perspective before. I'll have to see if I got any pictures so you can see what I am talking about...even though any pictures can't do justice to those theaters (especially the Allen).

We had a great time hopping through the State, Palace and Allen theaters. If you weren't able to make it...don't worry, Playhouse Square gives free tours of the theaters the first Saturday of every month. Tour guides let you in on some of the history and stories behind Cleveland's famed theaters (i just found out that George Burns and Gracie Allen were married at the Palace Theater because they loved it so much!). We will definitely be back there to sketch some more. There are so many things to draw and check out. Just check out some of the sketchings from this month:

Next month...we'll be sketching at Tower City. Looking forward to seeing everybody down there on December 8th!
