Social Sketching: Columns & Coffee at the National Museum of Women in the Arts

Saturday, January 13th
10:00 AM - 1:00 PM

The National Museum of Women in the Arts
1250 New York Ave, NW
The group will meet at the Starbucks at H and 14th at 10:00AM.

Columns & Coffee is a monthly social sketching excursion led by the L’Enfants, the emerging architects branch of the ICAA Washington Mid Atlantic Chapter.

Anyone with an interest in sketching and/or connecting with other artists and architects is encouraged to attend.
This month, the group will be sketching indoors at the National Museum of Women in the Arts. The firm of Wood, Donn & Deming designed this building, which opened in 1908 as the headquarter of Washington’s Grand Masonic Lodge. Since 1987, it has been occupied by the NMWA. The interior features an ornate Grand Hall and mezzanines, as well as an auditorium space for private events.


Participants should be prepared to bring their own materials.

We will be sketching for about 2.5-3 hours, but people are welcome to come and go as they please.

Cost: $ 10 (general admission to museum).
