I'm really hoping that we'll have a nice sunny day for this next SketchCrawl in July. What I'm thinking is possibly a nice park area with a lot of variety of things/people to draw. Anyone have any suggestions? There are a lot of places in SF, but I always like hearing the new spots people come up with.

I'm going to try to get up to SF for this one. I'd suggest Fisherman's Wharf, but I'm open to other places. Plenty of interesting stuff to draw around the city.
I run a small drawing group in Santa Barbara.
I've also been keeping a sketchbook thread on ConceptArt.org

What about working our way from one end of Golden Gate Park to the other?

How about the Dolores Park area? There's quite a variety of subject matter there - vistas of the Mission and beyond, people lounging, children's playground, dogs, houses, restaurants/cafes...

The Yerba Buena Gardens Festival is hosting a performance of the Axis Dance company with live music at 1:00, 1:50 and 2:40. We could sketch the dancers, the musicians and the people watching them.

I will be there this week but will have to fly home to Houston too early on Saturday to participate. If I'm lucky I'll get in a sketch or two in the morning at Muir Woods. Wherever you meet, I hope you all have a great time. And please share your work. I love San Francisco. You live in a great place.

Hey. First-time poster here. I wasn't even aware of this event until I happened to see Mr. Casarosa's tweet about it. I really like this concept, and although I have a little nervousness about drawing in public, this seems like the best possible way to break through that.

So I know this is probably the #1 question newbies ask, but -- once a place/time is decided, can I just show up? Do I need to sign up anywhere?

nervous to sketch in public - you will get over it :) specially if you do it often.

yep, just show up and start sketching :0

Hope to see you there!

When was the last time we sketched at Fisherman's Wharf?
There is so much there and places to sit.
Lots of color and activity.

Okkei! Sorry for the delay, but indeed democracy deems that we'll crawl at the Ferry Building then head toward the Yerba Buena Gardens ...

Let's do this:
10:30am meet by the SpaceRocket to the right of the Ferry Building.
4:30pm sketchbook share in front of SAMOVAR in the Yerba Buena Gardens!

Cool?
Spread the word!

See you there!
