November 7th Sketch Crawl at the Brownstone Inn

For the November crawl, we'll be sketching a piece of Cleveland that is slightly off the beaten path...but completely full of history. The historic Brownstone Inn is located on a stretch of Prospect Avenue in MidTown Cleveland that still maintains a glimpse of what the city was like in the early part of the last century. Old historic inn is an old mansion that was built in 1874 and now operates as a bed and breakfast.

We'll meet at the entrance to the Inn at 3649 Prospect Ave. The Inn keeper has graciously allowed us to come into the Inn and do some sketching. Guests will be at the B&B, so we'll have to be mindful of them as we sketch. I'm trying to get us a small tour (as i always do), but we'll have to see how busy Robin is with preparing breakfast for his guests.

You won't want to miss sketching the inside and the outside of this historic home! There are a number of historic buildings along prospect that are worth sketching...i'll point some of them out during the crawl. As always, the Cleveland Sketch Crawl is from 10am - 12noon. See you there!
