In front of the Botanical Building, Balboa Park, San Diego

What a great 3 days we had together at the event!

Official count from all three events (Friday's Meet N Greet, Saturday Marathon sketching in Balboa and Sunday in Old Town), is 108.

Lydia Velarde and her planning committee put together a fabulous event for which there was nothing but praise and well-wishes from the attendees.

Too see the images from the event posted our in the Flickr group, find the logo in the upper right margin, or click here

Lydia Velarde created three You Tube videos of the event.  Find them linked in the upper right margin.

USk Manifesto, "We share our drawings online." 

We are encouraging all attendees to post their sketches in the Flickr group. Find the link in the upper right margin, just under our FB link.  The Flickr group provides stability and longevity in holding our sketches in one place, unlike hastags.  It is also easy to copy and paste the Flickr group url wherever you would like.

You can also post directly onto the FB group, and the hashtag, #usksd3, is available for social media.  Some are having problems with FB's instability with hashtags in general.

San Diego, you made us proud!! Thanks to the local committee for such an outstanding job, and to all the participants who were able to join us there
