Sketchers were warmly welcomed in out of the rain to enjoy a lively morning of drawing, eating and conversation. Even though we moved into the main room for better light after they had us all set up, the staff couldn’t have been nicer. The cappuccinos were delightful to look at, and the delicious food was enough for to-go boxes. I encouraged students to try to capture the “flavor of the place,” and I think they all did. Many courageous sketchers even added the hardest thing of all for me: people!
