On Wednesday, May 16, we are gathering for a “drink and draw” – or a “snack and sketch” for those who don’t drink – at the Babalu in East Memphis, 6450 Poplar Avenue. It’s sort of a sketching happy hour, and should be a good opportunity for people who can’t make weekend gatherings.
The Memphis Urban Sketchers has participated in a variety of outings lately.
We commemorated the 1968 Sanitation Workers Strike with a sketch walk from the National Civil Rights Museum to the Clayborn Temple, where the sanitation workers began their march every day starting in February 1968, to City Hall. It was a beautiful day for walking and sketching these sites that have seen so much history.

We’ve also had recent outings at Shelby Farms, the Dixon, and a final goodbye to the Cleveland Street Flea Market, where we enjoyed so many sketch outings over the years.

In June we’ll meet at the Big River Crossing and sketch the views while suspended over the Mississippi River. Join us June 2 from 10:00 AM to 12:00 PM. Meet at the entrance on the Memphis side.
