I have been made aware of an event the San Diego Urban Sketchers might be interested in. I will not attend due to a Los Angeles Museum art "field trip" I will be on. Here is the Information: The Alley Arts Festival in Vista will be held on Saturday, September 13th. There are lots of activities planned in Vista’s historic downtown, so there would be a variety of things/people/activities to sketch. One of our Urban Sketchers, Kim Cruz will have a booth with her husband. More details about the festival follow below.
