so i ran into this website called meetup.com last week thru my friend carolita. i recommend checking it out. it's a good way to network and meet new artists. i signed up to 3 meet up groups. this sunday i'm meeting up with the first group called central park sketch, it should be fun, i'm taking my watercolors and a new sketchbook i just got. i also signed up to a figure drawing meet up and another one called old school art. if your looking for groups to sketch with i highly recommend checking it out.
