Sketching the Cleveland Police Mounted Unit

The Cleveland Police has a storied history. From the very beginning, the mounted unit has been an integral and powerful part of the police force, which continues to this day.

In our attempt to always find new and interesting locations for us to sketch, we will be heading to the Cleveland Mounted Police station (1150 E 38th St, just south of South Marginal Road) on the near east side of Downtown in January. By the way, if you try and look for this on Google Maps, it will give you the wrong location. Click here to see where the stable is. Due to the New Year, we will be getting together on Saturday, January 8th (the second Tuesday of the month).

This will be an awesome opportunity to visit and sketch a true hidden gem. Make sure you are able to make this one. Noreen will be on hand to lead this first Sketch Crawl of the new year. Email her at

As always, we'll be meeting at 10am and sketching till 12noon.

December Sketch Crawl

The holidays are here and so are the amazing performances at Tower City Center! For this month's crawl we'll be meeting at the fountain inside Tower City to sketch the activity surrounding the mall and the lobby of Terminal Tower.

There are tons of amazing things to sketch and at 1pm, special performances for the whole family will take place on the main staircase. Hundreds of families come down for those performances, so it is quite a site to draw.

As usual, we'll meet at 10am and sketch till 12noon. Of course you are welcome to sketch as long as you like, but we can at least meet back up at noon and share our sketches with each other.
