Ready, Set, Sketch: Healdsburg!

Come join us SATURDAY July 12, 2014 at 10am-1pm in Healdsburg for the next “Ready, Set, Sketch!” group outing (It also happens to be a World Wide Sketchcrawl day).
Healdsburg's  Gazeebo in the Plaza
We’ll meet at 10am at the gazebo in the downtown plaza then disperse to sketch around the area. We’ll meet back at 1pm to share our sketches.

The town of Healdsburg has an endless supply of sketching opportunities, restaurants, wine tasting rooms, 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).

Here’s a Google map link:

Parking is free but to avoid a time limit, it’s best to park a couple blocks from the plaza.

I’ll also be giving away one FREE copy of my book, The Artist on the Road: Impressions of Greece to one person in attendance.


Ready, Set, Sketch: Redwoodhill Farms!

The next “Ready, Set, Sketch!” group outing is Saturday June 14, 2014. 10:00 am – 1:00 pm at Redwoodhill Farms, just outside Sebastopol.
Owner Sharon Bice will give a little tour of the farm so folks can get the “lay of the land,” enjoy a cheese reception, and perhaps be inspired for a place to sketch.
Don’t miss this great day of sketching, cheese tasting, and farm tour.
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 to sit on). The event is free. Come on out and join us!
