Feb 5th Sketch Crawl - Grays Armory!

On February 5th, the Cleveland Sketch Crawl will head to the historic Cleveland Grays' Armory at the intersection of Bolivar and Prospect (near E.14th), 1234 Bolivar Road. This historic building was once home to the Cleveland Grays, an independent volunteer militia company organized on 28 Aug. 1837. The Grays were established to provide extra protection for the growing city of Cleveland and the Western Reserve. The armory building was built in 1893 and is truly a one-of-a-kind architectural gem. Today the armory acts as a museum, event hall and even has an active firing range.

We'll meet at the entrance at 10:00 am. We'll sketch inside till about 12noon. Although it will most likely be cold outside, make sure to get plenty of photos of the outside of this magnificent building! Or if you're truly brave, you can sketch outside (not for the faint of heart).

Any age and skill level are welcome! Whether you are a sketcher, painter, or are welcome at the Cleveland Sketch Crawl
