October 2nd Crawl at the CLE Museum of Art

How about some Sketch Crawling this Saturday? On Saturday, October 2nd, we'll be sketching inside the Cleveland Museum of Art's Armor Court. There are an amazing array of items to sketch at the museum, but we'll begin inside the Armor Court (where the knight is on the horse). We'll meet at our usual time...10am...we'll meet at the armor court.

This is going to be a different crawl for some of you. The museum only allows pencil for sketching. You will not be permitted to bring in pens, ink of any kind, paints, pastels or charcoal. Only pencils and graphite will be allowed inside the museum.

On most crawls we have some photographer friends that join us. You will need to check with the museum about the rules regarding photography.


The Cleveland Sketch Crawl is a free monthly event for anyone who loves to draw and explore the city. We usually get together the first Saturday of the month, from 10am - 12noon, we "crawl" through a particular area of the city, sketching points of interest. What you draw is up to you! It is an opportunity to explore the city, learn new techniques from other artists and meet new people. Any age and skill level are welcome! Whether you are a sketcher, painter, or are welcome at the Cleveland Sketch Crawl

If you have questions, call Josh Taylor at Downtown Cleveland Alliance (216-736-7799) or email him at

Cleveland Sketch Hop!!

I'm on the road getting set up for this year's Sparx City Hop, which is tomorrow! 10 great Cleveland neighborhoods will be connected by FREE trolleys from 11am - 11pm on Sept 11th. Over 100 restaurants, 70 galleries and artist studios, festivals and over 30 concerts will take place throughout the day and night! Check out all the event details here

We will be sketching through the event! Normally we meet at 10am, but tomorrow we will be meeting at 11am at the Sparx Trolley hub on E.4th Street and Prospect. Look for the group with the sketch pads. We'll start sketching all the activity at the E.4th hub and then head over to Tower City's Street Festival at 12noon. Food will be available at the festival so bring some money and your sense of adventure.

Here is a map of where we will meet:
