Let's Go Sketch! is an invitation to come sketch outdoors and on location at historic Mountain View Cemetery (Oooo...boo!), capturing what you see from direct observation. This location offers the unique opportunity to practice sketching and painting among 19th century monuments with a garden background and views of the bay. There will be lots of rich subject matter from which to choose. Let's Go Sketch! combines art instruction with opportunities to create community while encouraging you to begin a sketch practice of your own.
