Urban Sketching

First Saturdays, 9 - 11 am except June 10

June to September 2023

Please refer to the Calendar​ for details about specific upcoming events.


Weather permitting, about once a month, June through September.

Join Jill Gustavis for a morning of urban sketching together in an easy-going environment. Bring your favorite art supply and enjoy capturing the action and architecture around one of downtown Pittsfield’s parks or common areas. This event is an independent gathering with casual interaction and not an instructed class or workshop. We’ll meet at the eastern end of Park Square, choose where to set up for the morning, and regroup to share work (optional) at the close.

Free to all. Not-yet-members of the Guild welcome. Please follow any and all current local regulations regarding health or public safety. 


Registration is available (and highly recommended) if you would like an email with additional info, supply suggestions, and any last minute updates to that month’s date/time/location. Please contact Jill Gustavis at with the subject line “urban sketching meetup” to register for that month’s event updates. 


Sessions are contingent on nice weather and availability (no rain dates). Advance updates will be posted in the members’ newsletter, but last minute updates will be sent to registrants via email. Jill also will post any last minute updates or cancellations on her own art instagram account @jillgustavisart.


2023’s scheduled sessions: June 10, July 1, August 5, September 2
(Please note June’s session is the second Saturday.)

No rain dates.
