Look for the next Sketchcrawl in October 2016!

Town Center at Lake Forest Park
17171 Bothell Way NE, Lake Forest Park

Join the Shoreline-Lake Forest Park Arts Council for an art-filled day of fun! The Arts Council has invited artists from all over the region to come to the Town Center and sketch what they see: shoppers in The Gallery at Town Center and the Farmer’s Market, people browsing in the bookstore, friends having a meal in The Commons, and budding artists creating. These sketchers will work independently but love to be watched in action so keep a look-out for T-shirt festooned Sketch-Artists! Come to the town Center and watch the masters at work, Sketchers will be in special bright-yellow ARTIST t-shirts.

For fun loving and adventurous souls:
Check out the Experimentation Station for all where you can try a new art media including: copper/silver point, printmaking, pastels, oils, markers, pens, pencils, sandpaper, fabric, felt, watercolor and more to try out and make your own masterpieces! Artists will be on-hand to help with casual instructions at this free-play area. All ages are welcome to come and play and learn new art skills. Sketching artists are also welcome to give mini lessons while others are experimenting.

For those interested in joining Sketchcrawl as an official sketcher:
Register online, then check in at noon at Third Place Commons. The first 10 sketchers will receive a free event t-shirt. Sketchcrawl badges will also be provided to help designate you as an official sketcher!

So what exactly is a Sketchcrawl?
The basic idea is to get artists out of the studio and into the public sphere where they can create while engaging the public. By sketching out in public artists are able to talk about their craft, answer questions, and give instructions to budding artists. The community gets the chance to watch art-in-action, engage with the making process, and discover talented artists that they never knew before.

For art patrons:
The Gallery at Town Center, located at the foot of the escalator, is a great place to find local art, unique gifts, and incredible cards for all occasion. Take some time to browse through the work of over 90 local artists in the gallery!

This event is sponsored by the Shoreline-Lake Forest Park Arts Council and all artists are welcome.


The Shoreline-Lake Forest Park Arts Council is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization whose mission is to nurture all of the arts in the community through programs and events, arts education, advocacy, and support for artists and arts organizations. Proceeds from The Gallery at Town Center help fund these programs and events.
