EVENTS (places you can find me and my art!)

SKETCH CRAWL AT ROCKWOOD: Sept 23, Saturday, 9am-1pm
Join a Sketch Crawl to experience Rockwood through the creation of your very own Heart-Scape Memory journal. You need NO art or formal writing experience to make this journal. Turn a walk-and-sketch adventure into a unique illustration-and-text journal by looking deeper into Rockwood’s historic natural gardens. Take time to discover and record your own point of view from new connections between your environment, natural beauty and YOU! This guided walk will stop in at least four prime locations in Rockwood’s idealized landscape. Visitors will be encouraged to interpret their emotional reactions to the spaces with words and images doodling between text and illustrations with ink, pencils and watercolors. Bring your own spiral bound art book, a folding seat and any familiar art supplies (pens, markers, watercolors, pencils, etc.); artistic options will also be provided.
Date: September 23, Saturday
Time: 9AM – 1PM
