The international event  PARK(ing) Day is Friday 9am – 3pm  and Capitol Hill will feature a cluster of pop-up parks. On the Hill you can tour a greenhouse, take a photo with string art, lounge, learn about having a neighborhood tool library, watch short films, and more. Head downhill to South Lake Union or to Downtown to visit even more one-day-only micro parks. Here’s a list of city-registered PARK(ing) Day sites.

The Capitol Hill Community Council meets on Thursday at the Cal Anderson Park Shelter House, 6:30 – 8pm. This month’s meeting focus is on crime and safety of Capitol Hill, with representatives from elected posts and SPD.

Hugo House launches the 2014-15 Literary Series on Friday with Backseats and Bedrooms. It’s about sex. Duh. ” Hear blush-inducing (or not!) new work from novelist Mona Simpson, author of Casebook and other novels; poet Dorothea Lasky, author of four books of poetry; and Carter Sickels, winner of the Lambda Literary’s Emerging Writer Award.” Info about future authors and dates for the new Lit Series is here.

10540815_651986838232882_1018989245850765633_nSeattle Fringe Festival runs through Sunday at multiple venues on Capitol Hill. Each performance is just $10. From our earlier post: “A total of 22 works produced by companies that won a spot in the festival through its non-juried lottery will provide 88 chances to see a performance of an hour or less for $10 at five venues within walking distance of each other on the Hill. The Annex Theatre, Eclectic Theatre, two separate adapted stages at the The Northwest Film Forum and the fairly new Calamus Auditorium at Gay City are all sites for this year’s fringe fest.” More details here.

Saturday: Happy 61st Birthday, Vito’s!

Thursday: 21 Capitol Hill restaurants, bars & food trucks ready to serve you at the annual Omnivorous fundraiser for Capitol Hill Housing.

Natural History Illustration: Colored Pencil Focus @ Center for Urban Horticulture
Jan 29 @ 6:30 PM – 9:00 PM

7 Wednesday Evenings, January 29-March 11, 2020, 6:30-9pm

Gain confidence in observing form while working with biological subjects to document and interpret what you see. An introduction to the practice of natural science illustration is complemented by critique sessions allowing students to discuss and respond to each other’s work. Build observational and visual interpretation skills while exploring illustration using a variety of techniques, including graphite, pen and ink, and colored pencil. Explore how these essential media are applied to make drawings into more refined illustrations.

The focus of this fundamental course is drawing, from gestural sketching to precision rendering of illustrations for scientific purposes. Each student is given the opportunity to render selected subjects in a variety of demonstrated techniques. This class can be taken as part of a series with the next season’s offering, which will focus on watercolor techniques rather than colored pencil.

All levels welcome.
