Screen Shot 2016-01-05 at 5.12.29 AM

Get ready for the next Ready Set, Sketch! group outing, Saturday, January 9!

We’ll meet, rain or shine, at Acre Coffee in Petaluma. The weather report was calling for rain for Saturday but it’s backing off from that report, at least at the moment. Lets hope its stays dry for three hours and then go back to the wet stuff we so desperately need! In case it is raining, we’ll still meet and draw in the cafe. Bring your favorite sketching book to share with the rest the group incase it is raining.

Please join us! No experience is necessary. All you need is something to draw on and something to draw with. The event is free.

TIME: 10am

DATE: Saturday January 9 (always the second Saturday of the month).

WHERE: Acre Coffee 10 Fourth St. Petaluma. (There are two Acre Coffee locations in Petaluma. We’ll meet at the 4th St. location)

Hope to see you all there!

Petaluma’s Iron Front Building and Classic Coca-Cola Sign

Back in the last century, it was believed that buildings made with cast iron fronts were more fire resistant. It turns out to not be true, but the practice proliferated anyway. This building is one of several along Western Avenue referred to  as Iron Front Row. The classic Coca-Cola sign painted on the back of the building features a young chicken since Petaluma was once known as the “Egg Capital of the World.”

I had a great time out sketching with the “Ready, Set, Sketch!” group. We had a total of 12 people in attendance. Thanks to everyone who came out.

Ready, Set, Sketch: Petaluma!


Come join us SATURDAY March 8, 2014. 10am-1pm in Petaluma, CA for the next “Ready, Set, Sketch!” group outing!

We’ll meet at 10am at Bovine Bakery (23 Kentucky Street, Petaluma, CA 94952) and then disperse around town to sketch. We’ll meet back at the same place at 1pm to share our sketches.

The town of Petaluma has an endless supply of sketching opportunities, restaurants, coffee shops, and books stores.

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.

Hope to see you there!



Starting this month, we’ll be meeting regulary on the second Saturday of each month (Different venue each time). So mark your calendars and come on out and sketch!
