April 2nd Sketch Crawl in Tremont!


This month (April 2nd), the Cleveland Sketch Crawl will be heading to Pilgrim United Church of Christ in Tremont! This iconic church is one of those landmarks that thousands of Clevelanders have passed by, but have never taken the time to go inside. Well, this Saturday we'll remedy that for many of you with a tour of this magnificent church!

We'll meet at one of the entrances for the church off of W.14th. The door we'll meet at is to the left of the main staircase to the sanctuary off of W.14th. As always, we'll meet at 10am and sketch till 12noon. Kate, the custodian of the church will give our group some background on the building and a little of the congregation's history in Cleveland. After sketching during the crawl, make sure to take time to explore Lincoln Park or Grumpy's Cafe for breakfast....both are right across from the church.

The church loves the fact that our group is coming this Saturday. As a nice gesture for opening their building for us, I thought that anyone willing to, could scan their drawing for the church to use. The church will make a scanner available in their office if anyone is interested.

March Sketching in the Museum

CLE Museum of Art

Ah...the Cleveland Museum of Art! A respite in crazy weather like this.

If you are thinking, "Wait a minute, we're suppose to be headed to St. Theodosius this week for the Sketch Crawl!". You aren't entirely wrong. We had originally planned to sketch the magnificent church, but there was a scheduling conflict and we weren't able to make it work. We are working on it for next month.

This Saturday (March 12th), we'll be headed to CMA from some exploration. Because its inside, you don't have to worry about what the weather is doing. You can take your time and sketch to your hearts content.

We'll meet in the lobby entrance to the museum just off Wade Oval, at 10am. We'll sketch till noon as and official group and share what we all have! Look forward to seeing you there!
