Strap on your boots, sharpen your pencils (as well as your perceptions) as Sketchcrawl Kenosha steps off on Saturday, May 15th to draw, write, paint, and celebrate our beautiful town. 

Meet at 10:00 AM at Carolyn’s Coffee Connection, 1351 52nd Street, Kenosha.   From there we’ll head out to our Sketchcrawl destinations:

  • Ed’s Tires (near 60th St. and Sheridan Rd), home to many birds (and tires).
  • Library Park (60th St. and 8th Ave.), home to Simmons Library and many historic homes.
  • Kenosha’s downtown.  Lunch, anyone?
  • Rhode Center for the Arts, (near 56th Street and 6th Ave.) home, for the final weekend, to the HarborMarket of Kenosha.  (HarborMarket moves to 2nd Av. and 56th St. on May 22.)
  • Simmons Island (50th St. and lakefront), home to the Simmons Island Marina, the Coast Guard Station, and our destination: the Southport Light Station Museum, which is hosting a grand opening celebration on May 15.

Sketchcrawl Kenosha is a part of International Sketchcrawl Day.   From Berlin to Barcelona on onward to Kenosha, artists, writers, photographers, and folks who just want to welcome warmer weather and clear skies take to the streets, parks, historic districts, and places of curiosity for fun, fellowship, and art.  

Visit Sketchcrawl Kenosha on Facebook.  Watch for Sketchcrawl Kenosha images on its Flickr Group.   Head over to the Kenosha Racine Arts Network (http://kenoshaartsnetwork.ning.com) and the Sketchcrawl Page there.

See you soon, I hope!

Head over to Carolyn’s Coffee Connection, 1351 52nd Street, Kenosha, on Monday, April 26 for a couple gatherings to excite your upper lumbar and tickle your fancy, too. 

First up is Sketchcrawl Kenosha at 6:00 PM.  Sketchcrawl is a worldwide event, taking place from Berlin to Barcelona to Kenosha, in which artists and writers take to the streets to capture the environment that surrounds them into words and pictures.  Sound like fun?  Make plans to attend on Monday night to learn about the Spring Crawl, taking place on May 15.  For more on Sketchcrawl, visit www.sketchcrawl.com.  Also stop by www.urbansketchers.com

At 6:30 PM, sit down (or remain standing) for a gathering by Southport Press.  In late March, Southport Press gathered ideas from Racine and Kenosha citizens and is now ready to begin to transform those ideas into fun projects.    Southport Press is the small press publishing division of Kenosha Community Media, Inc., www.kenoshamedia.org

These activities are free and open to the public.   Please join us!
