More photo albums!

Tuesday morning’s Sketchcrawl was an arty good time! Twenty-two people showed up at 9:00 a.m. (not the easiest thing for teenagers, we realize!), sketchbook in hand, ready to go walkabout in downtown Burbank and do some drawing. We made four stops in all: across the street from City Hall (many things of interest to sketch, from the Deco-style building to the fountain); in front of the Story Tavern (a great example of Craftsman and Art Nouveau) with alternate views across the street to Wild Carvery; in front of the marquee above The Great Grill (with a beautiful wrought iron gate at the entrance to Granville behind us); and the courtyard on Palm, among the fast food venues and movie theater. We spent about 15-20 minutes at each stop, and made it back to the library around 11 a.m. for a glass of lemonade, a short watercolor demo, and a sharing of what we’d drawn. Above is a picture of most of the participants (a few had to leave right at 11:00). If you’d like to make a traveling watercolor palette like Melissa's in the picture below (it's an Altoids tin with bottle caps to hold the paint), come to our Makerspace workshop on July 7! (We'll supply the materials.)

Wow! Remind us never to turn our backs on YOU people in a dark alley! The usual suspects turned up for our Make a Mystery workshop with Gay Kinman on Wednesday night at Buena Vista, and the "what if"s were flying! Murderous suspects, hapless victim, and we never even got around to defining the sleuth! We learned where the term "red herring" came from, we set our mystery in Switzerland on Christmas Eve (for very good reasons), and we hope to see/hear the end of this story from some of you before the summer is over!

If you want to see more photos from the Sketchcrawl or from the Make A Mystery workshop, go to our Facebook page to see the albums we have created. If you're still not signed up for Teen Meetup in the Burb, you're missing out on some great programs! Sign up!
