2008 - 2009 Schedule is out!

The weather may be getting colder, but there is no need to be down. We have a whole line up of Cleveland Sketch Crawl dates set for the next 6 months! Check out your calendar and make sure you mark down these dates.

The Cleveland Sketch Crawl takes place the first Saturday of each month and we sketch from 10am - 12noon. While the normal meeting place has been The Arcade in Downtown, we will now be meeting at the location where we draw. For more information, you can always call 216-736-7799 and ask for Josh. Check below for details:

November 1st Sketch Crawl

The November Cleveland Sketch Crawl will take place at the Dunham Tavern & Museum. The crawl will kick off (as ususal) at 10am and will last till 12noon. We will not meet at The Arcade first, everyone will meet at the museum. The address is 6709 Euclid Avenue (right across from Gallucci's).

We will get a tour of the museum and grounds before we start sketching. This location was a stagecoach house that was on the main road between Detroit and Buffalo, so this place has a ton of history and stories behind it.

Bring your sketch book, camera, pens, charcoal, pencils or whatever floats your artistic boat and we'll see you on November 1st at 10am!
