If you have never done drawing/sketching on location it is a lot of fun. Check the weather before leaving your home. Clear and overcast days are great for sketching.
Before leaving your home, here is a list of things to bring with you to this activity. You’ll need a bag with sketch paper, pencils, erasers, clipboard, stool/folding chair, hat, sunglasses, bottled water, snack food, sunscreen, an umbrella, and other art supplies too.
Dress comfortable because you will be sketching in the hot sun and shade too. Most people will be wearing shorts, t-shirt, and flip-flops. Wear what you want.
It is a short drive from Downtown Orlando to the Greeneda Courtyard in Winter Park. Check your GPS for the best route there. Most sketcher will probably be parking at the Winter Park Train Station parking lot, entering from W. Morse Blvd, or side street parking along E. Morse Blvd, limited to three hours. There address is 150 West Morse Blvd, Winter Park, 32789. Plus, there is more parking at the public parking garage near the Panera Bread Company Building.
All sketchers will be meeting at the Greeneda Courtyard – located at the back ally between Barneys Cafe’ and Bosphorous restaurant, across the street from the WP Train Station. They are located at 118 S Park Ave, Winter Park, FL 32789. The Courtyard is arranged with garden tables and chairs available to the public.
We will sit around and draw and might even enjoy freshly brewed Barney’s coffee or pastries from the Croissant Gourmet bakery around the corner. Refreshments are not covered by the group. They are at your own expense.
The patio is surrounded by charming subject matters we can sketch; second floors balconies, canopies, pictorial staircase, planters, fountain, lovely storefronts on one side, and a used books store on the other. Each and all plays beautiful stories of the Winter Park community we wish to capture into our sketchbooks in lines and colors.
