A group of local artists enjoyed a beautiful day on this last Saturday while going out on what is known globally as the "30th World Wide SketchCrawl."
Everyone had a great time sketching and drawing in three different locations around town, then we convened at a local coffee house to share our work.
The "SketchCrawl" phenomenon was begun about 5 or 6 years ago in San Francisco, when local artist, Enrico Casarosa, started thinking about rather than a pub crawl with pints and friends, why not a sketch crawl with sketchbooks and friends. He got a group together and they went on the first SketchCrawl with probably just a few people, and they probably had a great time.
So Enrico got a web page built and began inviting others to join in. In short order, the idea spread across the entire earth and now there have been exactly 30 SketchCrawls held.
This January 22nd, 2011, was the first official entry of the Tri-Cities, Wa, aritists to participate.
