Open Air in Market Square!

No, no, isn't going to be snowing this Saturday! I just wanted to show a cool picture of the Market.

We'll be sketch crawling through Market Square, which is directly across from the West Side Market. We will meet at the corner of Market Ave. and W.25th at 10am. For this month, Karen Sandstrom will be leading the crawl. As many of you know, my wife and I are expecting our first born and the due date is actually August 1st! From the looks of things...we might not make it to Saturday. So...Karen has agreed to lead the crawl.

As always the Cleveland Sketch Crawl takes place the first Saturday of every month, from 10am - 12noon.

Next month, on September 5th, we'll be crawling through the lower level of the Detroit Superior Bridge. We've done this location for the crawl before and it has been a huge hit! The Cuyahoga County Engineers open this lower level of the bridge up 3 times a year to the general public. It really offers some unique perspectives of the city and the river. Plus there are exhibits from Cleveland's Street Car past.

On September 12th, the 7th annual Sparx City Hop will be taking place from 12noon - 12midnight. Over 8 different neighborhoods around and in Downtown will be connected by free trolleys! This is a perfect time to sketch crawl through the city and explore.

You can park once and explore the Warehouse District, Gateway District, the Quadrangle, St. Clair Superior, Asiatown, Midtown, Tremont, Ohio City, and the Old Superior Viaduct in the Flats!

July 11th Sketch Crawl Rained out

Due to the severe storms and torrents of rain this morning, the sketch crawl has been cancelled. If anyone went to the E.14th and Euclid entance to Ingenuity, I was there till about 12:20. I hope I didn't miss you. Of couse, now it's sunny out side... Ahh Murphys Law of summer.

Next month the Sketch Crawl will be at the West Side Market. Open Air in Market Square will be taking should be a great crawl!

We will be back to our normal time (10 till 12noon) on the first Saturday of the month.

See you then!

Sketch Crawl at Ingenuity

First - I need to start off with the "I-can't-believe-i-didn't-update-my-blog-on-the-July-Sketch-Crawl-date-and-location" apology. So.....i'm sorry for my delay in letting you all know.

Just for the month of July, we have bumped our Sketch Crawl to the second week of the month (which is tomorrow). The Crawl will be taking place this Saturday at a special time, from 12noon - 2pm. We will be sketch crawling our way through the Ingenuity Festival! Those participating in the sketch crawl will receive free admittance into the festival. This will provide a unique and challenging environment to sketch in...more than just stationary items....crowds and activities as well!

Meet at the entrance to the festival at the intersection of E.14th and Euclid (near Star Plaza in PlayhouseSquare).
