Grab your sketching tool of choice, your beverage of choice, and a seat for Sip & Sketch with Bay Area Now 9 artist José Figueroa. Figueroa is a great observer of the movement, people, feelings and landscapes that he moves through—or watches from slightly afar. After years of artistic practice, the artist’s work collectively results in a living archive of the world around him. Figueroa will offer prompts and invitations to approaches for you to consider in your sketches, while also inviting you to follow your own muse and practice. Drop in at any time and stay as long as you’d like.

A selection of materials including paper, colored pencils, pens, watercolors will be provided. Feel free to bring your own materials as well. Beverages and snacks are available for purchase and can be enjoyed throughout the galleries.
