Postcards from MOCA - Museum of Contemporary Art, a mirrored jewel in Cleveland's crown designed by Farshid Moussavi. It rises 60 feet from a hexagonal base to a square top, certainly a challenge to sketch. More about MOCA here www.mocacleveland.org.

There is ample paid parking in the surrounding university and museum structures, and there is limited street parking. This location is easily accessible by the Healthline and the red rapid line. The address is 11400 Euclid Ave, Cleveland.
The weather should be chilly but mild, so outdoor sketching is a possibility. Please be advised that if you decide to sketch inside MOCA that there is an admission fee, and please be careful what supplies you bring in, as museums typically only allow pencil.
Sketchers of all levels and abilities are warmly welcomed to sketch with us. Other than admission fees to venues, there is no other cost involved. Meaning, we don't charge you a penny.
We look forward to seeing you!

The Euclid Beach Carousel is restored to immaculate condition. I love the glass house they built around it. Many families were out and enjoying a ride. Sketch and thumbnails done with woodless graphite on Molsekine.

In January, looking out to the winter scene at Shaker Square from Deweys Coffee, glad I was inside! Both sketches used General's Woodless Graphite on Moleskine, with a little watercolor.

Here are 2 pastel drawings by George Czyrba from the last sketch crawl Nov. 30 at the Rockefeller Park Greenhouse. He really caught the spirit quickly and finished these in less than an hour!
