Details

July's the perfect season for a Mediterranean getaway!

But the Clark Kerr campus is closer and has many similar features: gardens, buildings, meadows and palms. There are beautiful places and also wonderful details to explore with pen, pencil or paints.

Here's how we'll roll:

* We'll meet at 1:00 and kick off with a group warm-up activity, then spread out and sketch some cool stuff.

* See the below google map image for where to meet. You might want to print out the attached map of the campus to help you explore.

* At 3:30 pm we'll meet back at the starting point for group gallery and feedback.

* Feel free to stay after and sketch more.
