STLWS Members Join Urban Sketchers St. Louis at the Boathouse at Forest Park

It was a chilly morning but our sketchers came out to enjoy a beautiful morning at the Boathouse at Forest Park. With the warmth of a fire pit and hot coffee the members were able to warm up and create some lovely sketches. Eddie the egret wanted to join in too.

Here are some photos the group shared with us.
