We’ve got a real treat this month because the next “Ready, Set, Sketch!” group outing is Saturday October 13, 2018. 10:00 am – 1:00 pm at Redwoodhill Farms ( you know, the goat cheese people! ), just outside Sebastopol.
Owner and fellow sketcher Sharon Bice will give us a quick tour of the farm so folks can get the “lay of the land.”
***Please carpool if possible***
Directions: From Sebastopol, or the stoplight at Occidental Rd. & Gravenstien Hwy: head north on GRAVENSTEIN HWY, 116 (towards Graton and the Russian River) Just past Graton Rd, turn left onto GREEN VALLEY RD. (there will be a gas station on the right as a landmark) Travel about 1.5 or 2 miles, then turn right on THOMAS RD. Travel up THOMAS RD until you see large rectangular sign then turn right into the parking area. There’ll be an A-frame at the entrance and Sharon will be there to direct traffic . Any overflow will park in the orchard.
About the group: Ready, Set, Sketch!” meets at a different location around Sonoma County the second Saturday of each month. To participate, all you need is something to draw on and something to draw with (it’s also nice to have a chair, hat, sunscreen, and water). The event is free. Come on out and join us!
The town of Graton, just north of Sebastopol California is home to several notable restaurants including Willow Wood Cafe and Mexico Lindo. This morning our group of nine met outside the Cafe, artists lining Graton Road well into the afternoon. After huddling around a bench to review each other’s work, we enjoyed a tasty late lunch at Mexico Lindo, followed by a quick stop to check out local artists’ work at Graton Art Gallery. What a great day!
Come join us Saturday November 30th in Graton for the next “Ready, Set, Sketch!” group outing!
We’ll meet at 10am in front of Willow Wood Market Cafe (http://goo.gl/maps/ZoWxa), then disperse to sketch around the area. We’ll meet back at 1pm to share our sketches.
All you need is something to draw on and something to draw with (it’s also nice to have a chair to sit on!). The event is free.
