29th World Wide Sketchcrawl 10/16/10

Join us as we participate in the 29th World Wide Sketchcrawl on October 16, 2010. We will be sketching at Foothill College in Los Altos, CA to take advantage of the Book Arts Jam, also scheduled for that day. This book arts festival features handmade books, 'zines, prints, book art structures and altered books. Printmaking and book art demonstrations are scheduled. About 500 visitors come to look, and learn --so there is lots of activity to capture on paper. The Book Arts Jam is sponsored by Foothill College and the Bay Area Book Artists. The design of this campus won multiple awards when it was first opened. 

Meet at the Cafeteria/Cafe at 10 AM, located in the Campus Center (building 2200-2300 on the campus map.)
The Exhibitors Hall and other events are located in the Campus Center.
Printmaking demonstrations are located in building 8400 on the campus map.

Sketchcrawl Shoreline Park

Our inaugural sketchcrawl took place at Shoreline Park in Mountain View, CA on 9/11/10. Four sketchers participated and enjoyed a perfect day on San Francisco Bay--plenty of sunshine and cool breezes. The park was busy with kite flyers, walkers, bikers, sail surfers, and radio-controlled sailboat racers. We shared our sketches over lunch near Rengstorff House, an 1868 Italianate Victorian home in the park. All images are copyrighted by the artists.

We plan to participate in the 29th Worldwide Sketchcrawl on Saturday 10/16/10. See post by 'mzsketchusa' at for details.
